This pattern is available for free.

A mitered rug made out of 10 in. squares. Could be used to make a giant rug, or a bathroom mat, or…

Yarn: Whatever. I recommend hard wearing yarn. Singles from hardy sheep breeds or vintage rug wool or plied yarns or yarns with mohair added. To create the correct thickness you will need to hold 3 worsted/aran yarns together, or one bulky and one worsted/aran. I’ve also done an almost bulky with a worsted/dk and a lighter weight yarn. Another whatever as long as you get gauge. I just play a bit until I find a combination I like and it seems about the same thickness as the other ones.

I think this would be a great project for recycled sweater wool! More on how to do that in my book, if you’re interested.

I’m doing solid squares, but this would be just as neat with one or two yarns held throughout and one or two that change half way through the square.
