This was one of the freebee patterns from lionheart yarn I picked up in Walmart a couple years ago.  I kept looking at it and saying I could never do it.  It also starts with just a few stitched at the center of the neck and works out to a triangle.  I couldn't believe it would do that.  Once I got started it was really easy.

I made this one with Plymouth Yarn, Encore acrylic and wool blend.
I want to make one in a chunky yarn.

Thank you and so am I.  Someone told me to read one stitch at a time and it was such an easy pattern once I started and did that.

This is really nice!  Quite elegant, actually - the yarn really shows off the stitch pattern.  Do you have the name of the pattern?  I might try to find it myself.

I have been tearing things apart looking for the pattern because I want to make another in a bulky yarn.  Can't find it but will keep searching and will let you know when I find.  I may have to try to find it on the internet.   Huh

Soozeq, thanks for finding the pattern!  And Grahairedoldlady, thanks for posting your pics - I always feel more inspired to try something if I can see a finished version other than the one shown in the pattern photo.  Helps me visualize the possibilities, I guess.  I think I need to try this one!

How lovely!  I made one of these in Homespun about 4 yrs ago and added an extra set of repeats so it would be more "cuddly".  I gave it to my sister when she had her youngest and she still digs it out every winter.  The Encore makes it much more elegant.  Well done.
