How to draw a curved triangle with curved inner corners?

I’m pretty new in graphic design (and Inkscape) and can’t figure out how to draw a unfilled rounded corners isosceles triangle.

What I’m trying to achieve is something like this:

Please notice the rounded corners in the inner side of the triangle and the outer corners.

This is what I got so far, but I can’t figure out how to curve the inner part of the corners:

There are probably a couple of ways to do this. Here’s how I would do it.

  1. Draw a triangle with the Create Stars and Polygons tool. Apply a thick stroke (about twice the thickness you need), and apply the rounded corners option in the stroke dialog.

  2. Click Path > Stroke to Path

  3. With the Edit Paths by Nodes tool, select the nodes of the inner path, removing them all, so you are left with one filled outer path.

  4. Remove the fill, and set a stroke thinner than before (thin enough to see the inside corners rounded)
