A simple lace-edged triangle made of a single skein of richly dyed silk. The pattern is repetitive and pleasant to work as the points complete.
A gram scale is very handy for using as much of the yardage as possible.

The update to the (10 year old!) original version is the removal of the pointed center and the use of a heavier yarn.
