Domino or Mitered Knitting

April 30th, 2018


Hey Knitters,

 

As a beginner or an advanced knitter you can make use of this unique method of knitting called the mitered or domino knitting. The stitch might look complicated or a little difficult but it is simple and very easy to learn and knit.

Mitered knitting is a form of knitting that connects or joins squares together at 45 degree angles. Also, mitered square are knitted adjacent to each other, diagonal or across rows. In other words, mitered knitting allows you to stack one square on the top or on the side of another square until your garment is completed.

For example, when knitting a craft such as as scarf, you complete one square and at the same time began another square. This method consists of picking up stitches from the previous square and adding the stitches to the knitting needle. This technique starts a new square without binding stitches off the needle or binding off the previous squares.
