Thank you! - Check our calendar or classes tabs at the top of the page for more classes and events.

Don't Be  A Square, Learn to Knit, Afghan Knit-Along, Block 15, " The Mighty Miter"

Behold The Mighty Miter!

This block starts in one corner and increases along the center line, using the backward loop cast-on to grow outward.  For many of us, the backward loop was the first cast-on that we learned.  Others picked it up in the course of making buttonholes or adding stitches at the underarm of a sleeve.

If you haven’t learned it yet, here’s your chance.  Amy shows us how! 

If you know how to knit and purl but are ready for the next step this KAL (Knit-Along) is for you. We will be joining Universal Yarn and Amy Gunderson for this KAL and you will have the added benefit of hands on help from Heidi. If you missed the earlier blocks - no worries, we will help you catch up.
