Sunny Meadow Corner-To-Corner Baby Blanket
"This is an easy, adaptable pattern. It requires knowing how to knit and purl, increase one stitch (knit into front and back or substitute your favorite way to make a stitch), decrease one stitch (knit 2 together or your favorite way to decrease), and (optional) knit to the back the last stitch of every row. This pattern starts at the corner. So, you just keep going with the increase until the sides are the size you want for your square (blanket, washcloth, whatever). And if you want a triangular shawl (or other triangle knitted item), just stop when your triangle is large enough."
NotesUse this technique for any square or triangular pattern. Adding stitches at the edges forms its own kind of border. It works for any weight yarn (and matching needle size).
