Inspired by the Modern Crosses quilt featured in Modern Log Cabin Quilting: 25 Simple Quilts and Patchwork Projects, by Susan Beal (Potter Craft 2011), this blanket combines two techniques—mitering and log cabin—to make a knitted interpretation of a log cabin quilt variation. Each seamless block starts with 4 miters that are knitted onto each other to form a cross shape, which then is framed with 4 log cabin strips. The blocks are joined together without sewing, using the 3-needle bind off method, and the blanket is finished with an applied i-cord edging that resembles the binding of a quilt.

The Mitered Crosses Group is a great place to find tips, tricks, yarn suggestions, and good company on your blanketeering journey.
