Mix It Up with Miters with Jenny King
Learn how to make a square from the outside in and then build modules onto it in 4 different directions. Mitered squares are not new to the knitter, but now there is a wonderful crochet version that actually looks like its knit counterpart.
Learn all the techniques needed to master mitered crochet, and be inspired to step outside the squares. Students will learn to work in 2 different directions using a modular mitered technique that is similar to but not like any other, and then the fun begins.
Why not try it in double crochet too, and let's leave out the center stitches and see what happens. Let's take the basic technique and mix it all up. And what about self striping yarn? Now we're talking!
Yarn and appropriate crochet hook.
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
