Miters by Design with Jane Slicer Smith
Miters have to be one of the simplest ways of achieving rewarding and colorful results. It is simply a basic garter stitch with a decrease, worked in two color stripes. Learn to pick up stitches and join colors as well as to weave in ends as you knit. Jane will demonstrate her use of miters from Capelets to A-line coats and as garment trims.
