This modular recipe is designed to use up Advent calendar mini skeins and scrap yarns, with each triangle requiring as little as 4-5 grams of sock-DK yarn. Enjoy!

TRIANGLES, a Knitted Quilt, is a recipe to create a quilt inspired knitting piece. Following the recipe you’ll knit strips of triangles, which later will be sewn together to endless possibilities. My suggestions includes a cushion, different sizes of blankets, and wearables wrap and scarf, but you could use the recipe to your fancy. Why not sewing the strips to create a sweater, or a simple square open cardigan, in Elizabeth Zimmermann style? I can’t wait to create more pieces, and see your unique creations taking shape.

Designed for my first Advent Calendar and inspired by scrappy Christmas Quilts, use this easy recipe to create your own heirloom piece for years to come, may it be a blanket, a cushion, a scarf, it will be loved and passed by.

Designed for both sock and DK yarn, and in multiple sizings, this modular design will work perfectly with your precious Advent yarn kits, but will be just amazing with any yarn!

I hope you can use this recipe as a blank canvas to create your own palette, maybe using those single skeins which have been laying around for awhile, or the precious hand dyed minis which you’ve been treasuring, or every little scrappy left from previous projects, with each triangle requiring as little as 4-5 grams of yarn.

The finished piece is easily adaptable and customizable.
See pictures for detailed sizings.

Multiple ideas are given to work with a yarn Advent calendar of 24/25 * 20gr mini skeins (for a total of 480/500 grams), but any number of mini skeins and/or big skeins and/or yarn can be used, finished dimension will vary accordingly.
Consider 1/2 extra mini skeins for sewing and finishing the edge of your piece.

One triangle measures around 12cm / 4¾” per side and uses around 4 (5) gr of Sock (DK) weight yarn, so you will be able to knit around 5 (4) full triangles with one mini skein of Sock (DK) yarn.

Suggested Needles
Sock (DK) weight version: 3mm / US2-3 (4mm / US6) circular needles, I suggest 60cm / 24” long, or dpns.
And a crochet hook in the same size or one size larger to crochet the edge for finishing, as I did on my cushion.

The gauge isn’t crucial on this project, but differences will affect the finished measurements and yarn amount needed.
Sock (DK) weight version: 12sts & 22rows (9sts & 16rows) = 5cm/2” in garter stitch, worked flat, and blocked.
