6 and 12 inch DC mitered granny square



Here is a pattern for a simple 12" mitered filler granny square. I've been using it to make 12 inch squares for various charities. This design has minimum holes for maximum warmth.

I haven't seen any other patterns for a square of this size so... I feel that I should post this for other folk. I will start with the 6" square.


US terms.
G or H hook (4.25mm - 5.0mm)
Worsted weight yarn



  1. Ch 4, sl st in 1st chain to form a ring.
  2. Ch 3 (counts as first dc from now on), 2dc in loop, ch 1, (3dc, ch 1) three times,  sl stitch in top of ch 3, pull the tail tight.
  3. Ch 3, 2 dc in corner, dc in next 2 dc, 3 dc in corner, ch 1, 3dc in corner, 2 dc in next 2 dcs, 1 dc in corner space, dc in the corner chain, ch 3, turn.
  4. Skip first space, dc in next 5 stitches, 3dc in next space, ch 1, 3dc,  dc in next 5 stitches, ch 3, turn.
  5. Skip first space, dc in next 8 stitches, 3dc in next space, ch 1, 3dc, dc in next 7 stitches, dc on top of previous turning chain, ch 3, turn.


Continue this until there are a total of 5 rows. This should be a 6 inch square.

To get a 12 inch square, continue in this manner for 11 rows.

Crosspost Art WIPs and a few misc announcements.

WIPs day!

My tumblr account is my art blog/personal blog.

Remember that my art blog will have some nudity. These in particular are half clothed individuals. xD

Also, a few weeks ago I got a new wacom Intuos 3 6 x 8 tablet off of ebay. Rather, used, but it was new to me.
Commemorative artwork here:

In order to make it through this winter season, I am going to offer digital commissions of some sort. Please stay tuned for this, I will definitely post about them.
Thaaanks.

Charity Knitting/Crochet: blanket squares, hats, etc

Bah. My family members don't really want handmade things for christmas, or at least EVERY year they say so.

I decided that I have a ton of acrylic and wool yarn, and nothing to do with them, and a bit of spare time, so I'm going to make blanket squares, hats, mittens, sweaters, and other miscellany for various charities.

I mean, this is what I'm doing when I"m not drawing or job searching or doing things with family. Or cleaning.

Here are some of the things I've made since earlier this month.
I was supposed to be doing inktober but that didn't go over so well. Too many interruptions. Anyway I'll post a link to my tumblr page when I have all my inktober pictures together. In any case, here are what I have so far.





Ah, I have a mitten pair or two that wasn't included, then a WIP vest, and a ton of squares.

Charities these items are going to:
http://www.afghansforafghans.org
http://friendsofpineridgereservation.org/
http://www.knit-a-square.com/

If you knit, crochet, sew, or just have extra money to give to charity, check out these charities too.
I have a slight shortage of wool but I"m looking for places I can donate acrylic items and school supplies.
I am looking to write up patterns for simple squares soon.

Sigh. Shipping is going to be intense, as I'm on a budget and only temp jobs at the moment.
Whatevs.
