This pattern is a simple, elegant, and very quick knit. It takes about an hour and a half or less from start to finish.
When I wrote this pattern, Colinette Point 5 came in 50 meter balls. They have since increased to 56 meters. Make it larger if you wish, or stop before the last 6 meters to make it more like the sample.
The knitting begins at the point of the triangle and you increase as you knit until you have only enough yarn left to bind off! Place a large button on the side you like best. There is no need to make a button hole, because the large gauge allows for many potential holes for the button!
