The version shown was made in one piece with the stitches for each mitred square being picked up from existing squares.
The pattern includes instructions for:
diagonally-knit garter squares
straight garter squares
stocking stitch squares
Different types of squares require different methods of construction.
Use any yarn and needles of your choice. 14 colours are needed so this is good for using up oddments.
The afghan shown was made using mitred squares. The pattern includes instructions for other types of squares.
The photo shows a small afghan, suitable for a child. It can easily be made bigger by increasing the size of the squares.
