Mitered square knitting is also known as modular knitting. It involves squares created with simple decreases at the center. The squares, also known as modules, are pieced together by picking up stitches along the edges. You can create any knitting pattern for any project, whether big or small.
How to Create a Mitered Square
To knit a mitered square, you need to follow the necessary simple steps below:
You should start with casting on the number of stitches that you need for one side of your square. Place a stitch marker and cast on an equal amount of stitches and ensure the tag is precisely at the center of the cast-on row.
2. Wrong and Right Side Rows
You need to slip the first stitch then knit all stitches while slipping the marker in the center. To create the right side row, slip the first stitch and knit until you have two stitches left before the stitch marker. Knit the two stitches together, then move the marker. You should then knit the next two stitches together.
Repeat the procedures until you only have two stitches left on the needles. You should bind off the two stitches normally
