hey everyone, i found this beautiful pattern for a triangle wrap, see h ere: http://a.b.c.de1.cc/Cuspid1.pdf

or just see picture here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/63306883@N00/1970775936/in/photostream/

the triangles within the wrap are formed by short rows.

anyway, i was wondering, can this pattern be changed in construction so it's like the clapotis, in that first there is some increases until it gets to a certain size, then knit straight triangles (somehow) for a while, then do the decreases?

i haven't done much work with short rows so i am not sure if this can be done, and if someone has an idea of how to go about this, let me know , i'd appreciate it greatly.

It is beautiful ... but I don't see any way to do it except as written, sorry - but you should try it - short rows are really not that bad! And wouldn't it be fun to add a new technique to your resume?

I'd choose a width from the directions for one of the triangles with an angled top, figure out how to change the shaping to add a triangle the other way to form your main body, then pick up sts to work the dec'ing triangles to complete the rectangle (because that part's harder and probably means more ripping out).

Experiment with a mini version (swatch) to save your sanity and yarn. Smiley
