Mitered Squares

I’m having a blast knitting mitered squares!  I decided to work two sizes of squares–small squares made up of 25 stitches and large squares made up of 51 stitches. I’m using the colors and sizes randomly and I’m trying to alter the orientation of the decrease diagonals for a patchwork look.

This type of knitting is truly addictive. As soon as I finish one square, I want to start another. I sat down to knit one square, and look where I got!

  1. Fun! I’ve a stash intended for a Mitered Crosses blanket (a la Kay Gardiner) and another stash of sock yarn hoping to also become a mitered square blanket. Your blog and photos are re-igniting my knitting mojo.

  2. Very inspiring! I wish I would have thought of this when I knit a baby alpaca scarf for my husband about 6 years ago. You are right, the fiber requires structure like the mitered squares or the knitted fabric sags. The scarf I knit is very well worn and perhaps now after you reinvent the wheel on this I can use the idea to replace the scarf for next Christmas. Love the colors too.
