Mitered Square Throw

Lion Brand® Amazing® - Fishermen's Wool®


One Mitered Square = 6 x 6 in. (15 x 15 cm). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


1. Throw is made of 56 Mitered Squares joined into 7 rows of 8 squares each.
2. Mitered Squares are made by casting on 41 sts, then decreasing 2 sts on the first row and on every other row.
3. Instructions are provided for the basic Mitered Square, with specific color combinations for Squares 1-4.
4. Completed Squares may not appear to be perfectly square. Sewing the Squares into strips will pull them into shape.

Cast on 41 sts.
Row 1(RS): K19, k3tog, k19.
Row 2 and all even numbered rows: Knit.
Row 3: K18, k3tog, k18.
Row 5: K17, k3tog, k17.
Row 7: K16, k3tog, k16.
Row 9: K15, k3tog, k15.
Row 11: K14, k3tog, k14.
Row 13: K13, k3tog, k13.

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.
