About the sizes

All Inklingo shapes are named with the finished size (minus the seam allowances).

Most patterns list the finished size of the shapes. If the finished size is not listed, you can usually tell the size by looking at adjoining squares and other shapes without doing the math.

Half Square Triangles (HST)

This is the shape collection you need if a pattern requires you to cut triangles from squares which are cut from strips which are 1.25 to 4 inches. Designers add 7/8 to get the width of the strip, so in some patterns:

  • 0.375 inch HST are cut from 1.25 inch squares
  • 2.125 inch HST are cut from 3 inch squares
  • 3.125 inch HST are cut from 4 inch squares

7/8 = 0.875
These sizes of HST are very common because the strips are easy measurements to rotary cut. There is an article about this on the All About Inklingo blog.
