I've had a lot of requests to write the text instructions for the Flying Triangles Baby Blanket pattern. I submitted it with a simple Excel spreadsheet graph - and little-to-no instructions. I decided I'd try to oblige, so I headed to my local Wal-Mart in Norwalk, Connecticut and bought some skeins of Red Heart Baby Econo in multi-colors. I paired it with some baby yarn solids that I had in my stash and got started.
The triangles are very small so they don't really stand out that much. I'm making nice progress on the blanket and testing the pattern (and graph) all at the same time. It's knit on US Size 15 needles holding two strands of yarn at the same time so it knits up exceptionally fast.
Here's my attempt to show you a close-up of the Flying Triangles. They're a wee bit difficult to see. I also want to make another similar pattern but with larger triangles. I'll get right to work on that one, too. You know, because I only have thirteen WIPS on my Ravelry Projects page. And here I thought I was making great progress checking things off my list. Yikes.
You know, I think this pattern would also be drop-dead-gorgeous in a nice bulky yarn. I'll have to think about that one. Hmmmmm.
