Loose Threads: Knit Mitered Square Blanket Tutorial Revision

Knit Mitered Square Blanket Tutorial Revision

I've been working on my knit mitered square blanket and have added a lot more photos and directions at the end of my original tutorial.  Some people have had questions about the pattern, so I thought it was time that I clarify the directions and take some better photos.   

You can find the directions here.   The link is also on my sidebar under Tutorials and Patterns. 

This is what I have done so far. 

To take some better photos for my tutorial, I started these two scarves.  The scarf on the left with the two mitered squares offset in a zig-zag pattern was my daughter's idea.  I really like this scarf.   I think the scarf on the right might end up being too wide so I might rework it to look like the scarf on the left.

You can really do a lot with a basket full of leftover sock yarn.  A lot of this came from trading with friends which I think makes a project extra special.

I hope you will check out my tutorial.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today!

I am not a knitter, but this sure is pretty! I thought I was looking at a quilt with tiny pieced strips at first. You have a real charmer in this project ~

I agree with Pokey! It's beautiful and modern! I can't knit and have never been a real fan of afghans, but this I love!

I learned to knit at about age 10, but didn't stick with it. My mother did quite a bit of knitting, but never anything like this! It is beautiful--and it boggles my mind!

Love all the color bits. Trading yarn is fun to do... I have a huge sack [won't fit in a pretty basket!] waiting for something. Maybe your pattern is just the thing. Too hot to knit right now. Thanks for writing the tute!
