Learn How To Make Basic Knitted Mitered Squares
In this video tutorial you will learn how to make knitted mitered squares.
The basic idea of a mitered square is that your cast on becomes the two outside edges of a square.
You knit your cast-on stitches and decrease in the middle until you have only one stitch left.
This technique will leave you with a perfect square that makes for really interesting directional knitting.
A mitered square is usually knitted in just the garter stitch and there are a few different ways you can make them.
