This pattern is available for free.

This pattern was designed to show off the graphic triangle motif. Shown here, using 6 colours of soft one ply merino worsted, you could easily use just two colours and create a totally different effect. I was happy to use all 6 colours, bits and pieces found in my stash.
The fairsle pattern is an easy repeat of only 3 rows.
An after-thought thumb technique is a wonderful way to add in a thumb without distorting a colour work pattern and it is used here.
Check out the Knit Cafe’s blog for all the pattern info. It is free too!
Happy Knitting!
