Finished Project: Valley Log Cabin Blanket

April 20, 2007 by
Filed under: Knitting 

Project Specs:
Pattern: My own, available soon at WEBS
Yarn: Valley Yarns Valley Superwash in seven lovely colors: colonial blue, forest, grass, ice blue, natural, spring leaf, and my personal favorite, teal
Needles: US 8 24″ and 40″
Size: Just shy of 36″x36″

This is the second pattern that I’ve designed for the store. I’m still not tired of log cabin knitting. This is basically the same design as the Nature Wool Log Cabin Blanket but with only 4 squares of log cabin.

And since people tend to ask about the back, here you go.

  2. Again, I LOVE this blanket, and as I think Chelsea and Billy (Ed’s niece and nephew) need one each :) I’m actually pondering colors right now…not that I need more projects, or more yarn!
    The back also looks FABULOUS!

  6. I am working on a log cabin blanket too. I was just wondering how you joined your squares together? I am thinking of using a single crochet on the wrong side but I’m not sure yet. Also, did you slip the first stitch when you were knitting your garter stitch rows? I just wondered as I did a few squares where I did NOT slip the first stitch and my stripes came out a little wonky which in turn made the square wonky, but if I slipped the first stitch it was more even, but did leave some kind of large stretched stitches at the beginning/end of each stripe. Guess you can’t have it all! Cool blanket, I just love log cabins!

  8. I have the instructions and the yarn to make the 6 square Valley Log Cabin Blanket. my question is after the first square how do I figure out the order of colors in square no. 2, 3, etc. so I use the colors evenly so I don’t run out of 1 color?? Please help. Thanks

  10. Ellen, for the other squares, just make sure you start with a different color in the center of each. Then follow the color sequence and it should work out evenly.
