A how-to for making a modular mitred square blanket. This is by no means an original idea, nor do I claim it to be. This is, however, my approach to knitting a mitred square blanket, seamlessly and modular. For those who detest seaming a thousand little squares together, I hope this approach to mitred squares will be of use and open up the world of blanket making. ! I've knit my blanket with all the left-overs from mostly kids knits. For me, it provides a memory blanket of all the things I've knit for my kids; a visual capture of where they've been at that time in their lives, the places we've explored, the emotions we've felt and the experiences we've shared. A record of our journey through life together captured in yarn. It's bold and bright, which is just the way I like my colours and kids! ! While my sample is knit in dk/8ply weight yarn it is incredibly easy to adjust for other yarn weights.
