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.
