The 100th episode celebration and giveaways continues!
Favorite guest stars of Knitting Daily TV Barry Klein and Laura Bryant share their expertise on mitered squares in episode 805. Mitered knitting is an easy technique that looks more complicated than it really is, and it can be the stepping-stone to building fun, functional knitwear accessories and sweaters.
Watch Barry and Laura on episode 805:
It's hard not to notice the colorful, fun, and even funky yarns that Barry and Laura have on display in this episode. From eyelash to wool yarns, mitered knitting is a great way to show off the yarn changes that each piece has. You can practice your mitered knitting with the free Jane purse pattern seen here in dark blue and red eyelash yarns. This pattern can be knit up in any yarns you have, so play around with it. A felted purse would be durable for everyday use, and fun sparkly yarns could create an eye-catching evening bag.
