Step into fall and winter with this flowery patterned triangle to keep things light and fun when the skies are gray. Worked top-down in two sizes (petite/tall), the repeating mosaic stitch is anything but boring—especially when worked with a bright gradient option (it might be even more fun to knit than it is to wear!). Bright colors not your thing? Then try it in a pair of low-contrast neutrals for a super-subtle jacquard effect that defines sophistication. Deceptively simple to work, using just one color per row, the garter-based motif is simple and soothing—a great option for a beginning colorwork project and amusing fun for experienced knitters.
