Mitered Square Scarf (Knitting Pattern Link) A Work-In-Progress


“As you knit these shaded squares you’ll enjoy watching the colors and textures create a unique pattern. This scarf will take any outfit out of the doldrums!”

Mitered Square Scarf Knitting Pattern

Here is the lovely pattern version. I don’t have any of this yarn, but I am trying with some beautiful wool from my stash.

Humble beginnings.  My knitting is definitely improving, but I have a long way to go to be completely satisfied with the results.  This is a super simple pattern.  I find that if I put a stitch counter (one that you can count backwards with) on my circulars, it is very easy to keep track of the rows.  This way I don’t have to keep track on the pattern itself.  That was kind of a pain.

As for the yarn . . . I only wish the color changes were not so subtle.  But, we’ll see how it turns out in the end.  I think I would like to try this pattern again with a different yarn.  Anyone have a favorite self-striping yarn?  I am up for suggestions.  (Perhaps after I try to use up some of my seemingly endless yarn stash.)

So, what I have learned from this project is how to better pick up stitches, and how to cast on in the middle of a project.

Please, share your thoughts.  I love hearing from you guys.  Gives me hope.   😀

Oh, btw . . . how long should I continue categorizing myself as a ‘beginner’ knitter??? LOL

  1. This looks like it is coming along really well. It looks to be a very effective pattern. I think that you are probably intermediate now!!

  2. Looks good! “Beginner” is a pretty personal term. You stop being a beginner when you stop feeling like a beginner. Sounds like you’re learning some fairly intermediate skills to me!

    • Thank you for your comments! I think I will stop feeling like such a beginner when I can get completely through a (nice) project with out missing and fixing all the mistakes. But, maybe that’s a forever thing, not just a beginner thing. Sometimes I can’t even figure out how to fix some of them yet (Yet being the operative word) and so end up just tearing back the entire thing. I know this will get better, with time. 😀
