Materials: Use RUG YARN, COTTON or WOOL RAGS, KNIT UNDERWEAR or STOCKINGS cut in strips.
- CUT RAGS in straight strips each 3/4" wide, or bias strips 1 1/2" wide; fold straight strips in half as you work; the bias ones will curl under themselves.
- CUT STOCKINGS in 3/4" strips, starting at top and making a continuous round and round strip to bottom; CUT KNIT UNDERWEAR in same manner, making strips narrower.
- EACH TRIANGLE required about 1 skein of RUG YARN; choose the arrangement you wish, and buy 1 skein for each triangle--there will be enough left over to work around edge. Note: The original model was made in brown, tan and yellow; a similar group of colors, or 3 shades of any color you wish may be used.
