Inspired by the costumes found in 'Game of Thrones', I decided to create my next stole with a nod to the exquisite design and embellishment which the production excels in.
The particular pattern I want to create involves the illusion of a babbling brook, so I am going to end up with a repeating V-shaped design.
First, I have plotted on a large sheet of paper, a grid pattern of 3/4 inches square. I created a pattern of alternating triangles that are joined by a solid line. The penciled grid is perfectly measured, but because I want to have my finished product reflect the flow of a river (which is not perfect), I am marking my ink guidelines in an irregular fashion. For what I needed, I made three rows of these.
Casting on at the lower triangle you will work your way up. Secure at the point of casting on (1), pick up the points, 2 and 3 returning to 4 and pull together securing the tented tips with a couple of stitches. You will then do a straight stitch to point 5, securing it as your base for the next triangle, as you did with the first.
