So I finished this one over a month ago… but decided to hold off adding it to the blog until I could get a photo “in context”. (That is, in my parents’ living room.)

Log Cabin Blanket (and Furry Little Brother)

  • Pattern: How to Log Cabin from Mason-Dixon Knitting
  • Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash in Navy, Chocolate, Walnut and Baby Denim
  • Needles: U.S. 7 (4.5mm) — started off with a 24″ circular and quickly switched to a 60″ circular when it got too big for the 24″ needle
  • Started 12/4/09, finished 4/26/10 (delivered 6/3/10)
  • Link to my Ravelry project page (login required)

I had no clue how much yarn I was going to need, so I started off with 4 balls each of the two browns and the navy blue, and 2 balls of the light blue. I ended up needing more than that; I bought two more balls of each color, and still had to cut short my outermost stripes of light brown and light blue. Decent amount of navy blue and dark brown leftover, though. By the end, I was just glad to be done with all that garter stitch! Here’s a shot of it spread out on my bed (queen size) so you can get an idea of scale and see the overall pattern a little better.

It very nearly covers an entire queen-size mattress.
