A tutorial on modular knitting, this book is perfect for novices just starting off using mitered squares as well as more seasoned knitters looking for innovative approaches to mitered knitting. Each pattern is written for three different-sized squares that can be mixed and matched quickly and without difficulty, and the squares can be easily customized for a great variety of designs. The basic idea is simple: the overall pattern of the piece is created through the variety of yarn used within the block and how it interacts with its neighboring blocks. The book provides 12 basic mitered designs, each in three sizes, as well as various decrease options, suggestions for color choices, and tips for making each mitered creation unique. Finally, the mitered mix afghan brings all of these techniques together in one page-popping project.
