Afghan Knitalong – Block Fifteen

Block Fifteen is live!

15 Mighty Miter with title_blogBehold The Mighty Miter!

This block starts in one corner and increases along the center line, using the backward loop cast-on to grow outward.  For many of us, the backward loop was the first cast-on that we learned.  Others picked it up in the course of making buttonholes or adding stitches at the underarm of a sleeve.

If you haven’t learned it yet, here’s your chance.  Amy shows us how!

Easy as pie, eh?
The center stitch in this block is slipped on every right side row, creating that clean elongated line running through the center of the block.  It’s a nice touch for this diagonal block.

As always, you can share your thoughts and work with us here, on Facebook, or in our Ravelry group.    Check back in two weeks for a new block that builds on this technique!
