| 10 Comments

In the Tunisian Crochet group on Ravelry, there was some discussion about making four mitered squares in a join-as-you-go process. I hope this is what Littleberry had in mind.

  1. Looks like the joining method in the link below would work for this project.

    • Obviously, in my brain if not my comment, if you want to expand past a four patch to a full blanket.

      • The person requesting this project wanted all the miters to point inward. She had figured out the technique with all the miters facing up. It is the inward-facing that was causing an issue.

  2. Isn’t Unforgettable a wonderful yarn? I love how it looks with your mitered Tunisian too!

  3. Hi, what advice would you give me to extend your pattern. I was thinking maybe working in rounds

    Anne.x

    • You could start off with large mitered squares (you could even make each square to be one-quarter afghan size), just keep the starting chain an odd number. Then, when you get to the trim of single crochet, you can continue extending outwards in rounds.

  4. Thank you! Got plenty of planning to do. Thanks for a brilliant pattern.
