Mitered Squares Blanket - for the last time


Joan took pictures of her new Mitered Squares Blanket in her room. Her photo shows more of the blanket than mine did.

What a beautiful blanket! How did you do the border and with what kind of needle(s)? It must have been challenging to manage the bulkiness while working on the border. I made a "Mason-Dixon Moderne" baby blanket, and towards the end of the project the interchangeable circular needles I was using popped apart several times.

This gorgeous blanket is a such a meaningful gift for your daughter, I think it is destined to become a family heirloom.

I made the "picture frame" border recommended in Mason-Dixon Knitting, knitting each side separately in garter stitch, then seaming the corners together. I used Addi Turbo circular needles in US size 8.

I tried to tell you so the other day, but blogger wouldn't load, so I'll tell you again: that came out beautifully! It's so striking! I wondered, looking at the work in progress, but really is gorgeous.

Thank you for the information. Maybe you used the 60" or 47" Addi circular? If I remember correctly from when I had the Mason-Dixon book out of the library, it doesn't comment on circular lengths. For both a border and a shawl that I tried I probably should have had a longer circular needle. For the border I ended up substituting crochet. For the shawl I revised the latter part of the directions, decreasing instead of continuing the increases and making a small blanket.
