### Square-mesh Triangle - 13 squares across the top

Recently Pinterest sent me a picture of a square-mesh shawl and I realized that even through I had squares and rectangles in square-mesh netting, I did not have a pattern for a triangle. So I decided to make one. I chose to have an odd number of squares across the top of the triangle. There are 3 squares in the border, 13 squares across the top, 7 points along the sides, and one square forming the point at the bottom.

Square Mesh Triangle Instructions

Tie the thread from the netting needle onto the foundation loop, leaving a 6" tail. Turn the netting at the end of each row.

Row 1: Net 2 more knots in the foundation loop. (2 loops in the row)
Row 2: Net 1 knot in each loop except the last loop; net 2 knots in the last loop. (3 loops in the row)
Row 3: Net 1 knot in each loop. (3 loops in the row)
Row 4: Net 1 knot in each loop except the last loop; net 2 knots in the last loop. (4 loops in the row)
Row 5: Net 1 knot in each loop. (4 loops in the row)
Row 6: Net 1 knot in each loop except the last loop; net 2 knots in the last loop. (5 loops in the row)
Row 7: Net 1 knot in each loop. (5 loops in the row)
Row 8: Net 1 knot in each loop except the last loop; net 2 knots in the last loop. (6 loops in the row)
Row 9: Net 1 knot in each loop. (6 loops in the row)
Row 10: Net 1 knot in each loop except the last loop; net 2 knots in the last loop. (7 loops in the row)
Row 11: Net 1 knot in each loop. (7 loops in the row)
Row 12: Net 1 knot in each loop except the last loop; net 2 knots in the last loop. (8 loops in the row)
Row 13: Net 1 knot in each loop. (8 loops in the row)
Row 14: Net 1 knot in each loop. (8 loops in the row)
Row 15: Net 1 knot in each loop until 2 loops are left, net those 2 loops together. (7 loops in the row)

Forming the first square of the netting
1. Remove the foundation loop from row 1 of the netting.
2. Tie the tail onto a tapestry needle, which is used in place of the netting needle.
3. Place the foundation-loop cord through another row of meshes.
4. Tie the foundation-loop cord into a circle and attach it to a tension device.
5. Net the first two loops together without using a mesh stick.
