Mitered Triangles Afghan

A modern twist to create a contemporary feel. Large miter triangles meet at the center of this afghan to create a visual effect that draws the eye outward. Simple rows of single and double crochet, can be made in a variety of color band widths, to allow a very customizable design. This is a great design for both men and women, with some bright colors it can even be enjoyed by kids.

Pattern Notes

Throw is worked in 4 squares, with all first corners worked in the center of the throw, and then worked outward to the corner of the throw.

Insert a removeable stitch marker at the first corner of each row and moving to the next row as the square is worked.

The last 2 rows of each square will not have a corner worked, instead stitches will be worked to “fill” in the remainder of the square.

Note Square working order to match pattern directions:
