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.
G or H hook (4.25mm - 5.0mm)
Worsted weight yarn
- Ch 4, sl st in 1st chain to form a ring.
- 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.
- 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.
- Skip first space, dc in next 5 stitches, 3dc in next space, ch 1, 3dc, dc in next 5 stitches, ch 3, turn.
- 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.
