I was looking for some potholder patterns on Ravelry and came across these patterns from Vivian Hoxbro's book. Knitting with mitered squares sounded so intriguing I ordered the book from Amazon so I could try the patterns.
These are 3 of her designs. They turned out a little large for my taste so I left off the loops and use them as hotpads instead.
Since I prefer small projects, I really
enjoy doing small squares and knitting them together as I go. There are patterns for garments like hats and shawls and sweaters in the book also, but I haven't tried any of them.
