Thank you to Red Heart Yarns for providing yarn support for this project.

Notes

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

It’s a pentagon, or five-sided polygon. It reminds me of a giant sand dollar so it would be very suitable for a nautical theme in a baby’s room. There are no hole-y bits since the staggered shells make a solid surface.

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.

Work 62 sc along side, 3 at row 1 point and 62 sc along opposite side leaving row 38 open, fasten off.

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.
