2016 Doily row 4

I wanted to turn the triangle around with this row so when this is done, we have triangles within triangles.  I suppose it satisfies the math nerd in me.

I expect there to be at least one more row, maybe two.  I don’t know yet!  I’ll keep stitching until it feels done to me.

In case you missed them, here are links to the first three rows.

Row 1
Row 2
Row 3

I used Lizbeth White Color 601 Size 40 thread for this row. The design as shown is approximately 7 inches (18 cm) across when stitched with size 40 thread.
