Tweedy Triangles Afghan

Lion Brand® Vanna's Colors

GAUGE:

One Triangle = about 8 1/2 in. (21.5 cm) across one side edge.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Tweedy Triangles Afghan Reviewed by tami defenderfer on 2012-09-04 ****
This pattern caught my eye because I love daisies. The pattern is pretty straight forward except in rounds 2 & 3. It took me about 5 triangles before I figured it out. The green triangle below is done following the pattern. It's still pretty but looks more like a "mum" than a "daisy"! The yellow triangle follows the pattern yet in round 3, (the pattern instructs to use the same color as round 2) you should use the same color you used for the center (round 1). That way the flower appears more like a daisy.

Also, perhaps this will help you: when working round 2, understand that the clusters will fold into the center. Then when you work the 3 dc in round 3, you are working into the dc "posts" of round 1. Then where it says to "sc in next 6-dc Cl" you are actually working the sc through the middle of the 6-dc Cl (it has folded to the center) and into the ch-2 space of round 1.

My triangles are only 6 inches. I used different yarn and a 6 mm hook.

Hope this helps!

tami
