mitered square question
If you want the finished square to be half the area of the original you need to divide the number of cast on stitches by 1.4 (It's all to do with Pythagoras' Theorem)
I believe there were 72 stitches for the original so you would need about 52.
Of course you can make them any size you want but, in my experience, small squares can be very tedious, and don't leave as much scope for striping.
