Kay from Mason Dixon Knitting has come up with a new blanket square that I just love - The Mitered Crosses Blanket. She was influenced by a new quilting book and quickly translated a quilting pattern into a knitting pattern. The new square combines two of her favorite knits - mitered squares and log cabin knitting. I too love the mitered square and I'm just now knitting my first log cabin blanket. I can see how someone could easily become obsessed. I wanted to try out this new pattern and what better way then to knit up a sample in dishcloth cotton.
I first started follow the Mason Dixon blog around the time that Kay and Ann were obsessing over mitered squares so I jumped in feet first.
First of all, I translated the knitted version into a polymer clay cane. The knitting came next and I knitted up a mitered square scarf with polymer clay buttons.
This is still my favorite scarf and I wear it often.
