I published the patterns for both my Log Cabin Blanket and my Log Cabin Cushion through Ravelry last weekend. I would like to thank all the knitters who took the time (and yarn) to test knit this for me. All your feedback is very much appreciated.
I really enjoyed designing both of these and I am delighted with how they have both turned out! These are my new favourite designs (I think I say that about all my new patterns).
My Log Cabin Blanket is 36 inches (91.5cm) square. For this blanket, I have gone with one of my favourite log cabins – one half of the square in light shades, the other in dark shades, and a red centre square to represent the heart of the home.
I used New Lanark Aran to knit my Log Cabin Blanket, as the Mill that produces this yarn is not far from my home. I do enjoy designing and knitting with locally made products, which makes this yarn an ideal choice for me.
The top and bottom pieces of the back of my cushion are knitted in one shade with only the button band being a different colour. I used red love heart buttons on my cushion; again to represent the heart of the home.
Instructions for both the blanket and the cushion are in written format (no charts). A colour photograph has been provided at each stage in the construction of the log cabin square to show how the square should look and a template has been provided too, so that you can experiment with different colours and yarns.
If you buy both my Log Cabin Blanket and my Log Cabin Cushion patterns, a £1.50 discount will be given at the Ravelry checkout.
No code needed. The discount will automatically be applied and this discount lasts throughout all of 2016.
Happy knitting everyone – I hope that 2016 is a happy and healthy year for all of you!
