Triangle Diagonals

I have a couple things I could blog on but I'm too tired to take pictures right now. Instead, here's another pick-up pattern.



This can be made as wide or thin as you'd like. Just expand the pattern out one side or the other. What is shown here is 13 pattern threads wide. In cotton crochet thread it made a band 5/8 inches wide.

The warping pattern is very simple.
G = Green
W = White

W W G W W G W W G W W G W W G W W G W W G W W
.W W W G W W G W W G W W G W W G W W G W W W

This pattern took me a little longer to get into the flow of but it's not too bad once you get into it. I will warn this seemed to take forever to do in cotton. Only set this up if you don't mind seeing it on your loom for awhile. You shouldn't feel intimidated by the length of the pattern though. The idea of the pattern is simple, it just takes awhile before it repeats because of the reverse in direction.

I love the way if you let your eyes unfocus you can almost see the pattern in the x's and o's. Maybe I'm just too sleepy.
