Update: tute added below

I joined the "fake swap" craftalong, choosing the Anthropologie knockoff swap as my goal. I saw this: http://bit.ly/hnfGPh and knew I wanted to make something like it, just not felted. I chose teal instead of grey, though I'm wishing I would have gone with a dark grey instead. This was incredibly easy and quick, and so now I'm looking forward to making more. That's a vintage clip-on earring at the center  Smiley

Terrible action shot first






I used size 6 needles and worsted weight, but you could certainly do this with any combination (I'm thinking lace weight on 4s would look awesome).

CO 2 sts
Row 1- k1, yo, k1
Row 2- k across
Row 3- k1, yo, k1, yo, k1
Row 4- k across

Pattern:
Row 1- K1, yo, k to last st, yo, k1
Row 2- k across

Continue in pattern until it's the length you want, bind off and finish as usual. Sew two of the triangle's points together, and using the same yarn (or not!) make two braids (what you'll tie it on with). Sew the braids to the outer triangle points and you're done. You can leave it like that or add something to the middle like I did.

I have several sweatshirts that need that little piece exactly!
Amy chance of a pattern? Or do I have to count the stitches?

No need to count stitches  Cheesy

It's just two very basic triangles. I used size 6 needles and worsted weight, but you could certainly do this with any combination (I'm thinking lace weight on 4s would look awesome).

CO 2 sts
Row 1- k1, yo, k1
Row 2- k across
Row 3- k1, yo, k1, yo, k1
Row 4- k across

Pattern:
Row 1- K1, yo, k to last st, yo, k1
Row 2- k across

Continue in pattern until it's the length you want, bind off and finish as usual. Sew two of the triangle's points together, and using the same yarn (or not!) make two braids (what you'll tie it on with). Sew the braids to the outer triangle points and you're done. You can leave it like that or add something to the middle like I did.

These triangles are cool because you can make them tiny or shawl-sized. Also, you could switch up the m1, you don't have to use a yo. I just liked the hole it leaves for this particular project.

The teal is nice and since you're using so little yarn you can take the other $124 bucks you saved doing it yourself and get more yarn!  Grin

So do I! It's very cute. Hmm... I have a few vintage clip on earrings that would make great centers for these, and they would be interchangeable too.

Thanks for the tutorial! Smiley
