2-colour triangles​

 

Colour work might appear scary on first glance but it's easier than you think. In this example, you will be working in a simple stocking stitch, using two different colours of yarn. Make sure your yarns are both the same weight, we used double-knitting yarn this time. 

Abbreviations: k = knit; p = purl; st = stitch; (A) = use colour A; (B) = use colour B.

Cast on in colour A, in multiples of 8 stitches, plus one extra stitch. For example, cast on 8+1=9st, or (8*2)+1=17st, or (8*3)+1=25st, etc.

At start of first row, join yarn B.

Row 1: *k1(B), k7(A), repeat from * to last st, k1(B)

Row 2: *p1(B), p7(A), repeat from * to last st, p1(B)

Row 3: k2(B), *k5(A), k3(B), repeat from * to last 7st, k5(A), k2(B)

Row 4: p2(B), *p5(A), p3(B), repeat from * to last 7st, p5(A), p2(B)

Row 5: k3(B), *k3(A), k5(B), repeat from * to last 6 st, k3(A), k3(B)

Row 6: p3(B), *p3(A), p5(B), repeat from * to last 6 st, p3(A), p3(B)

Row 7: k4(B), *k1(A), k7(B), repeat from * to last 5st, k1(A), k4(B)

Row 8: p4(B), *p1(A), p7(B), repeat from * to last 5st, p1(A), p4(B)

Row 9: k4(A), *k1(B), k7(A), repeat from * to last 5st, k1(B), k4(A)

Row 10: p4(A), *p1(B), p7(A), repeat from * to last 5st, p1(B), p4(A)

Row 11: k3(A), *k3(B), k5(A), repeat from * to last 6st, k3(B), k3(A)

Row 12: p3(A), *p3(B), p5(A), repeat from * to last 6st, p3(B), p3(A)

Row 13: k2(A), *k5(B), k3(A), repeat from * to last 7st, k5(B), k2(A)

Row 14: p2(A), *p5(B), p3(A), repeat from * to last 7st, p5(B), p2(A)

Row 15: *k1(A), k7(B), repeat from * to last st, k1(A)

Row 16: *p1(A), p7(B), repeat from * to last st, p1(A)

These 16 rows form pattern.
