GAUGE:

14 hdc = about 4 in. (10 cm).
1 square = about 9 3/4 x 9 3/4 in. (25 x 25 cm).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

 

NOTES:

1. 24 Squares are worked individually.
2. Each Square is worked 'Log Cabin' style, by beginning with a center square, then working 'logs' around the center.
3. Each Square uses 5 colors, beginning at the center with A. One side of each Square is worked with light colors and the other side with dark colors.
4. Squares are sewn tog following a diagram; be sure to turn Squares in the direction shown on diagram to make the 'arrow' effect.
5. To change yarn color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st. Fasten off old color and proceed with new color.
6. If desired, work over yarn ends as you go to save having to weave them all in at the end.

Can you say colorful boys and girls? I love this. This is a piece of art all by itself. My preference would be to have it on the bed at all times to enjoy all of the colors in the afghan. However, Kitty may not allow it. He has a tendency to "scratch" the bed linen and I would not be happy if he damaged this.

Until I read the directions for this I thought it was worked in continuous lengths. I am amazed that this is done in twenty four motifs and joined. This log cabin arrow crochet project just shot up to the top of my to make list.

I cant remember how old I was when I encountered my first handmade quilt. I do remember wielding scissors for what seemed like days for a Postage Stamp quilt, and snuggling under my paternal grandmas Sunbonnet Sue. But the geometry and contrasts of the Log Cabin quickly made it my favorite. Im so happy to see this in crochet form. Its the best of both worldsafghan and quilt.

Wow! This is like combining two crafts into one...quilting and crocheting! I love this pattern either way. It does look intimidating but once you start reading the pattern not so much. The only thing I might change would be the denali (pink) color. I think it seems to stand out too much. I think I might substitute badlands instead. Thanks for the beautiful pattern!

Oh my word, this Log Cabin Arrow Afghan is particularly beautiful! The colors are spectacular and, if you do not like the arrow design, there are umpteen different ways to put the squares together, it all depends on your imagination and preferences. I love that it is such an Easy pattern even though it looks super complicated. Anyone seeing the completed afghan would be extremely impressed.

Very appopriate for a log cabin and camping events. Gives me images of bonfire and mountains and trees. It helps that the pattern is found right on the front page.

Wow. The name is very appropriate for the look of this afghan. I imagine cool nights in a camping site near the mountain. Wow, thanks for the one who prepared the pattern, kind enough to place it right on the same page. Thank you.

I just finished this log cabin afghan and love it! I was careful to match the gauge and do have to say that I ran out of some colors on about square 17, so I did a chart of all the stitches for each color and planned out squares 18 - 24 a bit differently. I then rearranged a few squares based on my own preference when I was finished with all of them. It is very striking!

Was it really difficult? I've been crocheting for several years but just looking at the picture slightly scares me away from even attempting the pattern! Do you make up all the squares separately and then attach them together at the end? Any tips for those of us who might try this pattern in the future?
