Third Time's the Charm

SIZE: 10 in wide by 72 in long
MATERIALS:
3 skeins (500 yd) KOIGU Mori
Or other fingering/ laceweight yarn
Size 4 (US) needles
GAUGE:
5 stitches = 1 inch
(Triad stitch - blocked)

This little bit of lacey goodness is lovely in any fingering/lace yarn. The pattern does a nice job mixing up the colors of a handpaint or multi-color yarn, but the lines are interesting enough to stand alone in a solid color.

It reminds me of those pictures where one person sees two wineglasses and another sees an old woman in profile; do it in green and call the openings shamrocks; do it in red and call them hearts.

Whatever you choose, call it gorgeous!

16 stitch, 16 row rep. all the way to the finish line. Easy, no?

So, I had this skein of Koigu's new wool/silk blend lying around...


Y'all can see where this is heading already.


Literally.


This is Triad.

A really fun pattern to work - nifty

Over there on the right.

Yes, you really snuck this up on us, but I found it before you posted this even LOL. I love the design, and have to redirect my skein of Sea Silk Origin to do this. And then I found that the pale Tiger I had gotten for Sunflower is actually perfect for Aspenglow, so that's going there and Evelyn is getting some brighter(I hope) Tiger in soon for Sunflower, hint, hint!! (I will need a Sunflower pattern to knit it of course)

I just ordered some alpaca/silk laceweight that will be perfect for this. I just ordered the pattern. I'm looking forward to this one.

I'm using a lace weight merino in merlot... it's turning out great! The pattern of 3 reminds me of angels...

Susan!
I'm using my first handmade-colored yarn for your wonderful Triad-Pattern. The combination reminds me of the windows in a church :-)
