This afghan is modular, constructed entirely in garter stitch. It uses one color at a time, and is easily adaptable to a variety of yarns and colorways. I find it is a great use for the odds and ends of yarn that I have built up in my stash. The repeating triangles compose a rhythm. Should you choose to use of a variety of yarns in the design, the triangles will add some continuity to the piece. The white row separators serve as a visual respite between the triangles of color, and add further uniformity to the overall design.
The afghan can be constructed simply be repeating a series of triangles, rectangles, and trapezoids. Each stripe is constructed from the bottom up, using only one color at a time. The long divider bars that separate the stripes are completed after the entire length of the strips are knitted. Using grafting, these long divider bars join the strips together. Because this pattern is based on triangles, you can create new designs by rearranging the triangles and trapezoids. While most of afghan is created using knitted garter stitch, one small section is created using purled garter stitch.
I used Plymouth Encore, worsted weight: 100 g balls (200 yards/ball).
MC (Colored) yarn: 12 balls, 2 each of six different colors (1 ball for each strip of 7 triangles).
CC (White) yarn: 5 balls.
