Hi Sharon Both the mitered granny square and mitered solid granny square start off a standard square before working along two sides of the square only – you can begin by making a chain circle or a magic circle, whichever you prefer The written instructions for both squares are available on my blog; the instructions for the mitered solid granny square can be found here: https://bellacocoblog.frogspark.agency/mitered-solid-granny-square/
