Needle Knit This Colorful C2C Mock Mitered Square Like a Pro

Needle Knit This Colorful C2C Mock Mitered Square Like a Pro

Inside: Needle knit this corner to corner mock mitered square in two colors with this free pattern and video tutorial.

Knit this iconic two color design from corner to corner with basic increases and decreases.  While it’s not a true mitered square it has the same look without working any decreases in the middle of the row.  These squares can be used alone as a washcloth or combine several in a unique design like chevrons or color blocks for a fun blanket.
