I just recently learned that this pattern is available as a digital version from Interweave. You can find it on their website in the E-patterns, along with lots of other wonderful patterns. Most exciting to me is that the pattern includes symbol charts as well as written instructions, so those of us that are more visual learners will find the instructions easy to follow.
So if you missed your opportunity to purchase the “Crochet Accessories” issue that it was included in, or that issue didn’t interest you, here is your opportunity to acquire it.
This is a really fun pattern to stitch up, each triangle works up quickly and the next triangle is worked off the previous one. A bit like working in motifs, but minus the headache of sewing them all together later. You can use a solid color yarn, but I designed this with long gradual color changing yarns in mind.
The lace pattern lends itself nicely to adding buttons, as any of the openings can become button holes. So working fewer triangles can be a great way to make a quick neck cozy for gift giving.
