For the second square, leave the stitch on the needle. While looking at the front of your work, pick up and knit 7 stitches along the left side of the diamond, then using the knitted cast on, cast on 8. - 16 sts in all

Repeat the 14 rows above.

You can knit a strip like this and use it as an edging. I am making a baby hat this way and will post the final result when ready!

I really need to learn how to do it, too! I knit the easy way using the round looms. Just never could get the knack of knitting with needles. But, you're making me want to try it again! :-)
