See all the Chunky Mochi colors here.
3 - 50 gm balls Chunky Mochi in #817 "beach scene"
Crystal Palace Bamboo 26" circular size 13 Needles
2 lg stitch markers or short length of contrasting yarn for marker loops
Size: Approx. 29" between "wing tips", 15" high at point of triangle.
Gauge: 10 sts/4 inches in garter stitch
(Gauge is not crucial, but knitting too tightly will not have a nice, soft drape.)
Abbreviations: K- knit, PM- place marker, sl M- slip marker, YO- yarn over
(slip the first st in every row throughout while knitting)
Cast on 5 sts
Row 1: K2, YO, PM, K1, PM, YO, K2 [7 sts]
Row 2 and all even rows: K
Row 3: K3, YO, sl M, K1, sl M, YO, K3 [9 sts]
Row 5: K4, YO, sl M, K1, sl M, YO, K4 [11 sts]
Row 7: K5, YO, sl M, K1, sl M, YO, K5 [13 sts]
(now begin adding YOs at each edge as well as center)
Row 9: K2, YO, K4, YO, sl M, K1, sl M, YO, K4, YO, K2 [17 sts]
Row 11: K2, YO, K6, YO, sl M, K1, sl M, YO, K6, YO, K2 [21 sts]
Row 13: K2, YO, K8, YO, sl M, K1, sl M, YO, K8, YO, K2 [25 sts]
Continue in this manner, adding 4 sts each odd numbered row as shown with YOs, using 3 balls total of Chunky Mochi.
When only a few yards of yarn remain, bind off the long edge of knitting LOOSELY (use a larger needle if you tend to bind off tightly.)
This edge should be loose since it is the outer edge of the triangle.
Block lightly if desired by dampening or spritzing with water and laying flat on bath towel to dry.
[Note: When joining a new ball, simply overlap the yarn for at least 4-6 sts and trim loose ends after knitting is complete.]
