This knitting "recipe" is for a mitered square project. What you do with your lovely mitered squares is completely up to you. You could make a blanket, a scarf, a cushion cover... the possibilities are endless.
This recipe was originally written for sock yarn, however, you could use any weight yarn. Just make sure you use the same weight yarn (or thereabouts) for each square.
If you are interested in joining a leisurely, long-term knitalong for a mitered square project then read on to the end of the recipe. There is also an opportunity for swapping and sharing leftover yarn.
Each square uses a very small amount of sock yarn - a ball about the size of a walnut.
