On Sunday, a fellow knitter’s husband brought up an interesting knitting problem…the Sierpinski’s Triangle. Searches on Ravelry and Google turned up a few lace shawl patterns, but there is just something about the pattern that screams colorwork to me. Specifically, where there are triangles, there is entrelac.
Since I couldn’t find anything like what I wanted, I pulled out my Entrelac book to see if anything would help me. I found a bicolor square chart and a triangular blanket pattern with the construction elements I needed. A quick sketch, a size 8 27″ circular needle, and two balls of stash yarn, and a proof-of-concept has been cast on. (The base triangles, at least.)
(I’m going to be writing the pattern out, and I need test knitters. If you’re interested, email me at jackiechica @ gmail . com)
