One Mitered Square = 6 x 6 in. (15 x 15 cm). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.


Throw is made of 56 Mitered Squares joined into 7 rows of 8 squares each.

Mitered Squares are made by casting on 41 sts, then decreasing 2 sts on the first row and on every other row.


Instructions are provided for the basic Mitered Square, with specific color combinations for Squares 1-4.

Completed Squares may not appear to be perfectly square.

Sewing the Squares into strips will pull them into shape.
