Mitred Knitting and adding the 10th square???

I have managed to do 9 squares with no problem. Now I can’t seem to get the pattern going the same way as the rest of the squares. I can’t find anything on the computer to give me some help. Is there an easy way to find out where I would start my next square???

What pattern are you following? Can you give us a link or a pattern name?

All I have is

“Mitred Square Patchwork Afghan”

I can’ find it on the website.

I could type it all out and sent it to you, if you wish.

Thank you for your quick reply.

Maybe one of these?

Don’t print the pattern here because of copyright problems. If it’s not onw of the above, could you tell us the instructions for the 10th square? Are you picking up along one adjoining edge or along two edges?

I checked in Reverley and it’s not in there.
I’ll get back to you some time tomorrow as I may have
solved my problem but I have to do a couple of more
squares along the “long size of the square I am building”.
I’ll know then if it’s working. Thank you…Mary

I typed out the pattern. If you read the last paragraph that is where I am stuck.

I tried to do a graph but it wouldn’t work so I kind of made a sample below.

At the top right hand corner there is a completed square (#1). I want the decrease
going the same way (#7 to #1) and it isn’t working for me.

                                  1     (1 is the square completed)

2 3 4 5 6 7 8 (2-8 a completed squares and now I have to join 1, 7, 8)

  • the decrease we do will show from #7 corner to #1 corner.

I hope this explains it. Find attached the pattern.

Hmm, I think I need a photo of the blanket or a diagram. I’m not sure where 2-8 are with respect to 1.
For example here is a drawing from Martine Ellis for orientation:

The first square is oriented at the bottom in her pattern photo but if you number the squares and show where you want the next one to go, I think it will help.

I look at it and see what happens…I guess I have to check out “a diamond” which
at the present time I do not have…oh well.

Don’t let the diamond vs square orientation stop you. I’m having trouble understanding where the new square is to go. So a simple photo of what you have or a drawing will work.
