I consider myself pretty much a traditionalist, but I really like the clean look of this afghan. The large blocks are uncomplicated with any additional textures and would work with many different types of dcor. I think it was a wise choice to go with a monochromatic theme, although this would look nice with heartier Christmas colors like Forest and Burgundy, too.

I too really like the looks of this 21st Century Log Cabin Afghan! I am not always a fan of the contemporary looks but I think the softness of the yarn in this case softens the geometrical patterns just enough that it appeals to me! I would like it in a different monochromatic color scheme as this one seems to heavy to me. One of the benefits with yarn is there definitely is no lack of choices when it comes to colors!

Hi. Thanks for the pattern. However, for the repeated row why does the first hdc go in the third stitch? I find it leaves less of a gap if you work in the second stitch. Doesn't the chain two count as the first hdc?


Hi djhixson, The designer of this pattern wrote in the pattern description that it's suitable for beginners and is a very easy pattern which is where we got the difficulty level from. Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

I really like this pattern. I call it clean and crisp. There is a special man I want to make this for. He just bought a very modern looking home with a lot of stone and glass. I think doing this in brown, black and off white will really fit in very nicely.

How are you supposed to follow this pattern when most of the instruments are blanked out by printers logo? Does anyone have a complete copy? I would really like to make this blanket but can't see how to use the darn pattern

Pamela, are you still having trouble printing the pattern? When I look at it online it seems to look fine but I haven't tried printing it yet, if you are still having trouble and want me to try printing it I can do that for you and then scan and email it to you directly. This is such a modern pattern and you could customize the colors to fit with any room in your home, that's what I love about it!
