Notes

This project is made in five separate triangles then seamed. A small little circle is joined in the middle.

If the chain 3 at the beginning of any rows tends to be a bit loopy, try working chain 2 instead.

The instructions make a baby blanket. You can make a throw by simply continuing the three repeat rows of the triangle. You can make a tree skirt by leaving one edge unseamed and omitting the circle in the middle. You can make a shawl by making four triangles, continuing as long as desired.

Gauge

10 rows of triangle measures approximately 4″ high and 7″ across the 10th row.

Each triangle measures 18″ from point to last row and 24″ across last row.

Note: In retrospect, after seeing the finished photo, I would have really loved it if all the above row had been worked in close to the same color and the center circle in close to the same color. I don’t want to take it out now, but it would have been nice for those “spikes” to all be the same color, radiating from the center circle.

Round 2: Ch 3, 2 dc in same sc as joining, 3 dc in each remaining sc, sl st to top of beg ch-3: 15 dc. Fasten off.

Seaming

With yarn needle, seam the side edges of the triangles to form a pentagon. Seam Circle at center of pentagon.

Finishing

Weave in ends carefully.
