20 Free Bias Knit Projects Made Corner-to-Corner

You work bias-knit projects corner-to-corner on the diagonal instead of bottom-up or side-to-side! Working corner to corner is commonly called ‘knitting on the bias.’ Your projects drape more this way than regular knitting and stretch more. Knitting in stripes really accentuates the direction of work, as you’ll see in this pattern selection.

Now, check out these beautiful projects from Yarnspirations – they’re all knit on the bias!

You’ll notice most of these patterns are for blankets and throws. Why is that?

When you cut, knit, or crochet garments on the bias, they stretch very differently from being worked bottom up or side to side. This makes it really hard to get a comfortable fit. Rather, they fit really snugly because they’re worked diagonally. And not so many people love that with knit garments.

But with blankets or throws, it doesn’t matter so much which way they stretch. So can you imagine the wonderful hug you’ll get from these bias-knit blankets? Snuggle under these to your heart’s content!
