How to Knit a Mitred Square

Learn how to knit these funky, modern, mitred squares with me. Perfect for cosy stash busting blankets, these squares are addictive once you start making them!

If videos are more your thing, then I've left a link to the YouTube Tutorial at the bottom of this page.

Stitches Used:

  • k - knit
  • ssk - slip slip knit
  • k2tog - knit two together

Written Pattern:

Cast on Row: Using your preferred cast on method (I use long-tail cast on), cast on an EVEN number of stitches.

Row 1: Knit half your stitches, place stitch marker, knit remaining stitches. Turn

Row 2: Knit to 2 stitches before marker, k2tog, slip marker, ssk, knit remaining stiches. Turn

Rest of Square: Repeat rows 1 & 2 until 2 stitches remain.

Final Row: k2tog, break yarn and pull tail through, sew in ends.
