Mitered Square Throw Reviewed by Jaki Erdoes on 2013-06-02 *****
I really enjoyed making this throw and I used it a lot on cool evenings. I have lots of leftover Homespun yarn, so I only bought a few skeins and used leftovers for the rest.

Gauge is not important, as long as you use the same type of yarn. This is MUCH easier if you pick up and knit along the sides of the squares, instead of making all those separate squares and sewing them together.

I especially enjoyed changing up the stitches, though some didn't lay as flat as others. Garter and moss stitches work best, but I also used basket stitches, alternating ribs, etc. I made some of the squares out of just one color, too, which made it more interesting.

Mitered Square Throw Reviewed by Vanessa Cato on 2013-05-11 ****
I am making this in Vanna's Choice. I sent for a kit for another afghan to make a gift for my aunt and uncle, but did not like the way it hung together in a second photo. I searched for another way to use the yarn and found this. The colours I am using are autumnal and are going together very well. I am an advanced knitter, and would ordinarily choose a more challenging pattern, but I am short on time. Besides, I am enjoying the challenge of getting the colour mix right. The tension works perfectly with Vanna's Choice, but the squares do look larger in the photo. The texture is both firm and soft - it will make a substantial blanket (I intend to make it a little larger). I also intend to put a border on the afghan, but haven't yet decided what sort of border. If I remember, I will post a photo when I have finished.

I also had trouble getting 6x6 squares following the pattern. I tried size 10 and finally size 9 needles to get the correct finished mitered square size and didn't have to add any stitches to the pattern. I am a little disappointed with the yarn as the fisherman's wool is very thin and color is darker than depicted in the photo. The photo makes the afghan seem soft, thick and fluffy but it isn't going to be when I'm done. I just started so I'll see what it looks like once I have a chance to put a number of squares together. It is a very easy pattern with a lot of repetition so will be boring for an experienced knitter.

Good pattern Reviewed by Megan Schmit on 2011-08-28 ****
This is a very easy pattern, but if you are expecting to do it exactly how the instructions tell you and end up with a finished product like the example picture shown, you're in for a surprise. In order to get the larger mitered squares shown, you have to use larger needles and add more stitches, otherwise with size 8 needles and following the pattern, I ended up with 4x4 in squares. Otherwise, this is a great pattern for a beginner, or for a seasoned knitter who wants a good project.

To arrive at the pattern gauge I had to use a #10 needle and add 4 stitches to each square pattern. Also, I put on an 8 row garter stitch border around the entire afghan and I am pleased with the finished afghan.

This is an easy pattern to follow and looks great. You can make it larger or smaller depending on how many squares you want to make. Since there are only 2 colors in each square I carried the yarn up so that there were not quite as many ends to deal with.
I also knitted 4 squares then joined them so I didn't have to deal with so many squares at the end.
I just started my second one.
