This pattern has been created for the Madison Knitters Guild Community Projects.

This is a quick and fun cloth to knit, mixing garter and stockinette strips in a mitered square, worked from 2 outer edges down to the opposite corner.

If straight needles are used, short (9”) needles will do well. However, the stitches will be a bit crowded on the short needles for the first few rows – good motivation to dive in and get those first dozen rows or so done right away!

Gauge is not critical for this project, but if you tend to knit very tightly, you may find it easier to use needles one size larger than specified.

Have fun and try mixing colors! This makes a good stash buster for odd cotton remnants. This also looks great in variegated cotton yarns.
