Explore the possibilities of this simple designer’s building block. Learn several versions using color, texture, and more! Best of all, since each successive square is built directly onto a previous one, no sewing is required. (Which means you might actually finish a blanket rather than store individual blocks in a drawer for eternity.) Bonus: Mitered squares are ideal for stashbusting.
Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off
