I previously made a mitred square blanket for DD and am toying with the idea of knitting another.  DD’s is random and I’d like to make one that is less so.  I wondered if anyone knew of something that is similar.  Would love it if it looked like a quilt pattern.  I’ve seen one that looks like a shadow quilt and another that looks like a half log cabin.  TIA

A quick look at Ravelry came up with
https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/block-afghan-2

Work the squares half one colour and half another and you would get essentially two HST joined together.  @Iminei is the queen of making a quit using only HSTs.

I wish I could knit properly or crochet.
I knit like a 7 yr old and can't get the hang of crocheting at all

That looks like a nice one to make @LeilaMay. I've got a partially made mitred blanket on the go. I use left over DK wool from other projects and add to it as I go. It's satisfying and fun to do :)
