12 Mitered Square Knitting Patterns

One simple square, a million knitted possibilities!

Mitered Square Knitting Patterns

Welcome to the wonderful world of mitered square knitting! Also sometimes called modular knitting, this technique uses squares that are created with simple decreases in the center.

These squares or "modules" can be pieced together by picking up stitches along the edges to create just about any kind of knitting pattern you can imagine. Browse our selection of our favorites below for some examples of the most stunning and creative uses for mitered squares.

We've also put together a quick pattern for a basic mitered square, so you can go to town designing your own mitered masterpieces!

How to Knit a Mitered Square

  1. Cast on the number of stitches you need for one side of your square.
  2. Place a stitch marker and then cast on the same number of stitches again so that your stitch marker is in the exact center of your cast on row.
  3. Wrong Side Rows: Slip the first stitch, knit all stitches, slipping the stitch marker in the center.
  4. Right Side Rows: Slip the first stitch, knit until you have two stitches left before the stitch marker. Knit those two stitches together, slip the stitch marker, and then knit the next two stitches together.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have two stitches left on your needles.
  6. Bind off those two stitches as normal!
