Please read:  Knitting Intermediate: Mitered Square Blanket A cozy blanket made from mitered squares is the perfect winter accessory. In this class you will learn how to knit a mitered square, pick-up stitches, and attach squares without much finishing needed. This class will have homework to be completed before each session. You will be able to complete at least 4 squares by the end of the class. A supply list will be included in the class confirmation. No discounts or vouchers. There are many different types of scrappy yarn blankets. The Mitered Square Blanket can use up a lot of leftover yarns or you can plan out your color scheme using just a few colors. It’s totally up to you! Likewise, you can choose the size yarn you wish to knit with. Thicker yarns and larger needles will produce larger squares, while thinner yarns and needles will produce smaller squares. Choose yarns of a similar weight for all of your squares, i.e. if knitting with worsted weight yarn [4], choose only worsted weight scrap yarns or skeins of yarn to knit into your blanket. I recommend using at least 2 colors. Match the needle size to the yarn size: Weight of Yarn Needle Size Sock/Fingering US 2 DK/Sport US 4 Worsted/Aran US 6 Bulky/Chunky US 8 If you are not really sure where to start, begin with the following to practice: Needle: US size 7 knitting needle (7/4.5 mm should be written on the packaging. I recommend getting the long straight needles - they’ll hold more stitches.) Yarn: *Note: Plan your colors ahead of time For class, it is recommended that you buy at least 2 balls of yarn to create 4 squares in different colors. You can also use leftover yarn from your other worsted weight projects. Some suggestions for yarn brands are below: Loops and Threads Impeccable Yarn (worsted/size 4) Michael’s brand only Lion Brand DIYarn (worsted/size 4) small skeins of yarn that can be found at Hobby Lobby and come in a variety of colors. 1 ball should be enough to create a square. Patons Classic Worsted Wool (worsted/size 4) can be found at most craft stores - Joann’s, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc. Notions: a yarn/darning needle
