New New Geometry

After the felting fiasco, I decided to start the New Geometry project again. These triangles and much sturdier and although I haven't tried felting a swatch, I'm sure they'll hold up once all the pieces are sewn together.

To knit one such triangle... as follows:  Size 5.5mm neeldes, DK yarn.

CO 30 stitches. and knit one row
Decrease row: Slip the first stitch of every row, K2tog, Knit to the last 2 stitches K2tog
Knit 3 rows

Repeat these four rows until there are 2 stitches left. K2tog, cut yarn, leaving at least 15cms, and pull through the loop.

To make the half triangle 

CO 16 stitches and knit one row.
Decrease row: Sl 1, K2tog, knit to the end of the row.
Knit 3 rows.

Repeat these four rows until there are 2 stitches left. K2tog, cut yarn, leaving at least 15cms, and pull through the loop.
