I have been watching so many of my friends working on the mitered square throws/blankets, I had planned to give it a try myself one day soon. When I saw this knitted collar, I knew it was the perfect project for me to venture into the world of mitered squares. The pattern is called the Chancellor's Collar, check it out, it knits up quite fast, I'm nearly done. I've used some of my own hand spun angora for the collar, I wish now that I had taken the angora all the way down to the large mitered row. I may end up re-knitting that section. Most of the squares are knitted with Noro silk garden lite, but with the small squares, I started mixing it up a bit. I've also incorporated Berroco Sox Metallic in a pink-purple blend and turquoise-sky blue-chartreuse-plum blend. Both sparkle with silver! I will have plenty left over for other projects...maybe I will have to start a mitered square blanket of my own. Goodness knows!
Have a great week! Blessings Friends!
