In 2011, almost eight years ago, I designed this lovely little wrap in continuous mitered squares. I think it may have been the first time that I figured out how to do mitered squares in a join-as-you-go so you didn’t have so many ends to weave in later.
As you can see, I capitalized on the look of self-striping yarn when making this continuous mitered square project. So pretty!
I doubt if I was the first person to come up with the idea of continuous mitered squares, but it was the first time I thought of it and gave it a whirl.
As far as I know, this pattern isn’t available.
In August 2013, I was asked to make a continuous mitered square with the miter going toward the outside of the square and here, I have used a self-striping yarn with a continuous mitered square.
You can find the pattern for this one on my website here: Tunisian Miter Squared.
In November 2015, I designed this pretty Patchwork Baby Blanket. I was especially pleased with it because it was the first time that I had used a single crochet ribbing attached vertically with short rows in the corners. I had done vertical ribbing attached like this for hats, but I needed to turn a corner with this one.
As you can see, I used a self-striping yarn and my well-established join-as-you-go continuous mitered squares. You can find the pattern here: Patchwork Baby Blanket.
In March 2017, I took a slightly different approach and designed a square blanket in one big miter using self-striping yarn. You can find the pattern for it on my website here: Straight to the Heart Baby Blanket.
In November 2017, I used a self-striping yarn to make continuous mitered squares in a 9-patch square and seamed them for a baby blanket. You can see the blanket here: Starry Night Baby Blanket.
A couple of days ago, I released the Patchwork Throw, which is a new version of my Patchwork Baby Blanket from three years ago.
As you can see, I have a well-established tendency to design continuous mitered squares in self-striping yarn, dating back to 2011. When I designed the new Patchwork Throw, if I copied anyone, I copied myself, not another designer.
You can get the pattern here: Patchwork Throw.
I hope you enjoy working on these projects. As you can see, I’ve been loving this technique since 2011. Have fun!
