Triangles within triangles within triangles — if you had the patience and the yarn you could go on for an eternity! Inspired by M. C. Escher, every new triangle is worked across half the stitches of the previous triangle, so there’s no sewing involved. When you knit it in an aran weight yarn like Masaki Biidama, you’ll end up with eight triangles. But the finer the yarn you choose, the more segments you’ll be able to add. The design is written to work with a range of yarn weights, and is perfect for helping you bust your stash by adding in bright pops of colour as you go.
