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.

With thanks to Cara Davis Conomos (www.januaryone.com) and Belinda Boaden (www.truebritknits.co.uk) for cheerful donations of technical assistance.
