I probably put the wrong stuff in the search box on uTube; so I couldn't find how to knit in the round and get a square.
I know how to do a mitred square; and of course, crochet a square from the center out; but I want to know how to make a KNITTED square from the center out.
I tried making increases with YO's and got a corner with big holes. Not good. I tried Kfbfbf, but I got a tight bunching. I tried the Kfbfbf with a larger ndl and got more bunching.
Any ideas? :|

Did you try picking up a bar between the stitches and knitting through the back loop?

I will try one with a make 1 k1 make one every other round and see what it does. The make one is English for pick up between the stitches of the last row.

Here's one to try and in the end you'll at least have an extra wash cloth or dish cloth! You can at least see if you like how their increases were done.
Enjoy

M1-- make a backwards loop where you want the extra stitch. then on the next row, it will twist again and be almost invisible.

What's with the hole in the middle?

I did it differently, simply casting on 4 st, using 2 dpns. Then did an increase in each stitch for 1st row, then every 2nd stitch for 2nd row and continued this way increasing in the 4 corners only. A bit fiddly to begin with but after the first few rows it was just fine.

The Emily Ocker's magic ring is similar to the ring used in crochet and also works very well. Just increase in the 4 corners to keep the project square.

These belly button center starts look interesting. Thanks for sending.

The hole can be made smaller by weaving the tail through the stitches and pulling.
