WHAT TO MAKE WITH YOUR knitted squareS?
Knit several squares and stitch it together to form a throw or blanket – whatever shape you want to use it for (for tips on how to stitch a blanket with the squares, read this post).
Knit or crochet a border and there you have an easy and finished product.
There are different variations of the pattern available – this is the one I learned, and I am hoping it will be the one for you too!

Knitting one square does not take a lot of time. If you are traveling for long distances, or don’t want to sit idle between breaks, you should seriously consider knitting squares.
It is addictive and before you know it, you’ll have enough squares to turn into something handmade and useful.
It is an ideal way to use up scraps of wool, or the many balls without projects (LOL).
Whatever you do, HAPPY KNITTING!
