Spring and Fall Triangles of Gold....

As Gold keeps hitting new records I have knit a triangle using "gold" colored yarn.  This Triangle is a great piece when it is under 70 degrees and you would like something to keep your neck warm.... I love it for the spring and fall...also nice for  Air Conditioned room...

This is a classic triangle using Yarn overs in 4 places every other row....

I used Nanney Kennedy Seacolors Yarn for the Gold and Blue/Gray and Cacasde 220 for the Dark Navy contrast rows.

As it is a triangle knit from the top down gauge is less important... use a relatively large needle for the yarn so it drapes nicely, too small and needle and it will be too stiff/structured to fall nicely.

I used a #10 needle.

SET UP:
WITH MAIN COLOR
Cast on 5
Row 1 and Row 2 KNIT

WITH Contrasting Color
Row 3 K2 YO Place Marker K1 YO K2 (7st)
Row 4 Knit all stitches including the yarnovers

NOTE: On the right side, the marker tells you this is the center stitch.... yarn over before marker on  right side move the marker, knit center stitch, yarn over again.... BE VERY CAREFUL HERE if you move the center stitche it will not look good.
On wrong side just knit all stitches and yarn overs


Pattern:
WITH MAIN COLOR
Row 5(right side) K2 ,YO, KNIT until marker, YO mover marker ,K1, YO ,KNIT until last 2 stitches ,YO, K2
Row 6(wrong side) KNIT all stitches including YO's

REPEAT Rows 5 and 6 alternating Main Color and Contrasting Color....

When you are getting to about 2/3 of size you would like,  Bring in DARKER contrast color....

2 rows Dark Contrast
