Crochet Pattern: Ribbed Mitered Square TawashiBy Claire Ortega – 18 Comments
|This useful item combines three of my favorite things in crochet: texture, miter squares and tawashis (hence its very straightforward name).
If you haven’t done a mitered square before, then you’re in for a treat. I love how it is worked back and forth in rows, and end up looking like a perfectly symmetrical square at the end of each row. So, if you’re not satisfied with the size you have, it’s easy to adjust the size–just stop whenever you feel it’s done!
So even if this pattern is for a tawashi, it’s easy to change into a dishcloth, potholder, or kitchen towel of the size you want–just add or decrease rows.
Finished Size: 7″ wide x 8″ tall
100% Acrylic Medium Weight Yarn
