I usually don't like the look of a log cabin pattern but this one has changed my mind. It has subtle color changes and you can always follow the color changes around. My first thought was my girlfriend's autistic daughter who would be fascinated by the color changes so I will make it for her. I have plenty of time until her birthday. I will look for this yarn. The Lion Brand store is here NYC. Thank you for the free pattern.

This is the perfect blanket to gift. Whether it be for a birthday, housewarming, Mothers Day or just because. Its a pretty neat and unusual square unlike the traditional granny square. Its easy to figure out too, just make the beginning square and then add on to it as shown in the diagram.

Im a little ambivalent about this project. Not because of the excellent instructions or amazing chart, but because of the suggestion to use self striping yarn. Im not sure it would actually look that much like a Log Cabin quilt. Structurally it looks the same, but Im not sure each stripe would be distinct enough. I would probably go back to individual skeins of yarn, and bury the old color in the next row so I dont have to sew in all those ends.

I love Mooglyblog! I have done many of the patterns from this blog and have never been disappointed. The layout looks a little intimidating on this but don't be discouraged, I think it is easier than it looks at first glance!

Nice to have such a high recommendation on an artisans blog! That makes me feel a lot more comfortable! I love the texture of this yarn and the rustic feel of the pattern. Its wonderful that it's explained in two different ways and labeled easy. This may be my very first crocheted afghan. Mystical Moors, Desert Sands or Ocean Waves...which color will I choose?
