Aeryn’s Triangle Motif

You can change colors whenever you like with this triangle. I will state which colors I changed to in each round, but feel free to change colors whenever you like. If you want to work your triangle in one color, or with self striping yarn, you can ignore the color change instructions and work the pattern as written.
