This Diagonal Granny Stripe had to be square – this means to you keep on increasing on both sides until the outer edges of the triangle measure the length and width you wish your finished project to be. Then decrease on both sides until your last cluster. I used candy pink, fuschia, peach, red, lemon, lime, mint, jade, aqua, turquoise, blue, denim, lilac and purple for my colour stripes:
On the increase half I used white to separate the colour bands. A few rows before I started decreasing I introduced grey between the colour bands. Source: Rainbow Candy Diagonal Granny Stripe
