Mitered granny square is a variation of the classic granny square. It can be used to make colorful blankets that resemble Bargello embroidery patterns. This tutorial has crochet chart as well as step by step pictures.
You have to know how to crochet the chain and double crochet stitch for this.
Here is the crochet chart for the mitered square.
I started with a magic ring. If you prefer making a ring with chains, chain 6 and then join first and last chain with a slip stitch.
Once the ring is ready, chain 3 and add 2 more double crochet stitches.
Chain 3 and add 3 more double crochet stitches.
A total of 4 sets are added to the ring.
Chain 3 and end the row by joining with the first stitch using a slip stitch.
Chain 3, turn work.
Add 2 double crochet stitches in the chain space.
Chain 3 and add 3 more double crochet stitches. This is the first corner of the square.
Add 3 more corners and end the row with slip stitch.
The third and fourth rows will only have half rows. We will be working only on two sides of the squares.
To turn back, chain 3, turn work and go back.
End with a double crochet stitch. Repeat with another color.
You can add as many color as you want. Even entire blankets can be made this way.
The last row goes all the way around the block.
There are many ways in which the blocks can be arranged to create geometric patterns.
