Eleven colors blend harmoniously in this mitered afghan.

This afghan is knit in four sections and seamed together.
Each of the four pieces begins at one corner, and mitered
squares are picked up and knit directly onto the existing work.

Please be aware that if using skeins of Brava with 273 yards per skein, the yardage requirements are very exact. To make sure you do not run out, double check gauge and limit yarn tails to 6”.

Though the mitered squares are all worked the same way, they begin slightly differently depending on their place in the pattern.

Each of the four sections of the afghan begins and is worked the same way. The first square cast on becomes one of the four corners of the finished afghan, and then four more squares are picked up and knit, one after another, to form a row of squares. The next row of squares is picked up and knit onto the previous row, and so on, until the 5×5 square section is complete.

Please note, the required yardage for this pattern is very exact - to ensure sufficient yarn quantities, please make sure you have exact gauge
