A Knitter's Gallery of Mitered Squares is a collection of 45 mitered squares containing color, texture and lace. The book starts with some basic information and instruction on knitting mitered squares. Then, it gives you a square chart and information on how to make it larger or smaller.
4 patterns give you practice combining different square designs, working squares in different directions, using squares as an accent on a garment and creating an entire garment with mitered squares. Use your imagination on the skills learned from the book and start creating your own squares and designs.
"Entrelac and mitered squares are kissing cousins of the knitting world. Where entrelac historically was done in stockinette, mitered squares have been associated with garter stitch, but no more! Jill and Jane have developed a creative collection of mitered squares featuring a variety of looks, styles, colors and textures. As primarily a stitch dictionary for mitered squares, their adaptability guide allows knitters to customize each square resulting in limitless design opportunities. If you are ready to spice up your modular knitting, A Knitter’s Gallery of Mitered Squares is the book you need." – Gwen Bortner, Teacher, Author, Designer

Knitter's Review by Clara Parks
In the late '90s, mitered squares and their entrelac cousins were synonymous with brightly colored, variegated novelty yarns. The mitered square was a useful way to break up the flatness of horizontal color stripes, pitching the rows diagonally in a pointed V. These furry, sparkly, shapeless, and chaotic vests didn't always enhance the innate beauty of the wearer, which may be part of why they fell out of favor.
The Miter Returns
The mother-daughter duo of Jill Bigelow Suttell and Jane Bigelow want to show mitered squares in a fresh new light. Having owned an LYS for a decade and traveled the country teaching workshops, they worked up swatch after swatch until they had something they believed was ready for public consumption.
A Class Act
Everything here has the utter simplicity and clarity of well honed teaching materials that have been tested and refined, class after class, into something approaching haiku.
