Pattern-free Possibilities with Myra Wood
Simple rectangles and squares offer endless creativity—it's all in how you put them together!
Start with a rectangular template, divide the space into sections, then knit to fill each section. Experiment with combining stitch patterns, techniques, and colors to create completely unique fabrics. Techniques include mitered squares, modular pieces, log cabin, and bias knitting.
Learn a join-as-you-go method and a modified mattress stitch to create a finished piece that can be turned into a bag or even part of a sweater design.

Supplies
50 yards each of 5-10 coordinating, smooth, #4 (worsted weight) yarns in a wool, wool-blend or acrylic. No plant fibers; 4 and 4.5mm/US 6 and 7 short straight or circular needles; 4 removable stitch markers; any knitting stitch guide

Homework
Swatch 1 CO 30 sts and knit 2" in stockinette, bind off and steam block by hovering an iron over the fabric and blasting with steam for a couple seconds to relax the fabric.
