Mitred corners (knitting)

Such fun to knit!
SQ1: Cast on 16 stitches R1: K6, K2tog, k2tog, K6
R2: and all even rows Knit
R3: K5, k2tog,K2tog, K5
R5: K4, K2tog, K2tog, K4 -
see a pattern forming??
R7: K3, K2tog, K2tog, K3
R9: K2, K2tog, K2tog, K2
R11: K1, K2tog, K2tog, K1
R13: K2tog twice
R14: K2tog
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.

Here are the pics of the hat i made using mitered corners. I made 6 of the squares, joined them together then knitted up 80 sts. The top was formed by sewing up 4 sets of 20 stitches to form the star points.

This was fun!

I love your stitch marker. (At least I think it's a stitch marker. I utterly fail at knitting/crochet)
