You are going to have so much fun knitting up this Attic Windows Square. We are creating four individual “windows” by knitting mitered squares then stitching them together into one block. For you quilt lovers, this might be a familiar design to you, but we are knitting it up. This pattern is the third clue of the Bernat Stitch Along that I’m hosting this season. Make sure to check out the Log Cabin, Flying Geese, and Pinwheel Blocks, too. I hope you join me and create the entire blanket during this 6-week KAL.
