As I knit the poncho…

Two things have come to me.  While the gray shape that I made is a hexagon, the Baltic Finger Labyrinth piece is an octagon!  Why I couldn’t count up to 8 is a mystery to me, but it is all good, it will all end up in the poncho.

The other thing — when knitting a modular triangle, you have to add decreases at the outer edges of the rows as well as along the center spine, otherwise you end up with a square.

The top is actually a schematic for making a square or diamond. Additional edge shaping is needed to get to a triangle.
