Knit To Be Square
Featuring small projects that are perfect for the beginning knitter, this book covers how to make modular squares that can be connected to create a variety of eye-catching designs. Including wearable designs and accessories--from capelets, hats, and scarves to bags, pillows, and quilts--these projects involve relatively few stitches, can be completed in a short amount of time, and are perfect for using up small amounts of leftover yarn. The modular domino squares can be combined in an infinite number of ways to create a wide variety of patterns, and mitered squares can be connected to achieve a patchwork effect similar to traditional quilts. Most of the projects are made with wool yarn knitted at a slightly looser gauge than recommended by the manufacturer so that the finished piece can be felted in the washing machine, creating unique and contemporary looks.
