Log Cabin Afghan

February 28th, 2010 Comments Off on Log Cabin Afghan

After too long a dry spell I have finally settled on my next knitting project: a log cabin afghan. I took a class at Lettuce Knit with my friend Akka last Friday. This pattern is very easy to do. If you can knit garter stitch and pick up stitches, you can do log cabin.

There are so many variations on the log cabin theme. As a quilter, and now an avid knitster, I was so excited to discover I could make traditional quilt designs in yarn. What’s more, depending on how you approach the project (as a connected series of blocks or one giant concentric square) knitting a log cabin afghan is easier and far more portable than the quilted version.

I’m three quarters of the way through the first block and already I’m in love. It will be a wonderful pleasure to cozy up underneath this beautiful blanket.
