Devised 2003 by Lara Friedman-Shedlov ...

Devised 2003 by Lara Friedman-Shedlov for Audrey McClellan's novel "The White Rose of Scotland," the second in her trio of romance novels about life on the fictional island of Eilean Dubh.
I believe the original deviser of the formation "petronella double triangles" was John Bowie Dickson, in the dance "Pinewoods Reel."
