|Two squares of mitered crochet.|
Use this technique to make mitered squares with self-striping yarn. You can change colors as you wish if you choose to make your own stripes.
Ch 42 (last two chains count as first sc in next row).
Sc in third chain and next 18 sts, skip 2 chains, sc 19. Ch 2, turn.
Sc 17, skip 2 sc, sc 18. Ch 2 (counts as first sc in next row), turn.
Sc 16, skip 2 sc, sc 17. Ch 2 (counts as first sc in next row), turn.
Sc 15, skip 2 sc, sc 16. Ch 2 (counts as first sc in next row), turn.
Repeat this pattern, with one fewer sc on each side of the skipped sts until the last row:
Skip 2 sc, sc, fasten off if changing colors.
From where you ended off with first square, ch2, pick up 19 sts across edge of previous square, ch 22.
Complete square as with first.
Chain 20, 20 sc in top of first sqare on previous row. Complete as with first row squares.
Attach yarn where previous square ended. Chain 2, ch2, sc 18 sts across edge of previous square, skip two sc, sc 19 across top of next square in the row below.
- A way to make them starting from one corner and making larger and larger rows.
- One very similar to what I made, but with nicer photos.
- Soemone did some interesting variants on the square linked above.
- A commercial pattern from Bernat. It has solid squares, which shows how the texture can also be interesting.
- A tawashi (Japanese scrubbie to be made in a sturdy acrylic). It sould be good practice.
- And now, for the most wonderful example, check out this beautiful shawl!! It’s the same technique, just with varied square sizes.
