What is a Mitered Square?
A mitered square is similar to C2C crochet in the fact that it is worked from one corner to the next. This square will be worked from the corner out with decreases added later to finish it.
Sometimes you can find these squares worked in a variety of stitches like the half double crochet or double crochet. This particular square is going to be worked using a single crochet stitch which is perfect for new crocheters.

The Yarn That is Perfect for This Square
I used Lily Sugar’n Cream Yarn from Yarnspirations. This is a 100% USA grown cotton yarn that is available in a large variety of colors. The best part is that is easy to find and a breeze to crochet with.
Even though I used a cotton yarn for my example you can make this in any type of yarn.
I could imagine multiples of these squares all sewn together in a beautiful crochet mitered square afghan or just the way they are as a gorgeous washcloth set for a baby.
