Description

Mitered knitting, dubbed “domino knitting” by Vivian Hoxbro in her book of the same name (Interweave Press 2000), is based on mitered squares, which can be worked in one or more colors. You start by making one square, and then you add more squares above this one to form a strip. Subsequent squares are added to the original strip until the fabric is the desired size. The result is a sort of patchwork, but you don’t have to sew the patches together—they’re connected as they’re knit. You also weave in most of the ends as you go, so the finishing is not nearly as tedious as you might expect.

Experience level: Advanced beginner.


Materials Information

Bring to Class:  Three colors of the same yarn, sport, DK, or light worsted weight (approximately 150 yards main color, 75 yards each of two contrasting colors), appropriate size needles (short--I use double-points), scissors, and tapestry needle.
