Slip Stitch Sampler Lapghan Reviewed by Sandy Holladay on 2015-03-04 *
Several errors in this pattern. Log 6 has 4 rows with incorrect directions. This has been discussed extensively in a class where this was offered.

In general, the choice of stitches isn't very good in that the central square starts everything off badly with slip stitches at the beginning and ending or rows, which makes for very ugly holes when you pick up stitches for the first log. The option to not get the holes is to pick up further down, which solves one problem, but creates another one...a very ugly bumpy ridge on the backside. Re-writing this so the square has beginning and ending stitches vs slip st would improve things ALOT.

Additionally logs 3 and 4 curl horribly, which is to be expected they start and end rows with purls, which everone knows curls badly vs having an edge of 1 or 2 garter stitches to anchor them.

This is one beautiful afghan pattern.but a lot of flaws to it., They don't really tell you of all the curling and how the logs fit so it is very difficult to see how your Afghan will turn out. Also this is a very long process , it might help to mention that unless you are a extremely fast knitter this will take you a long time to finish. It is also helpful to tell that you need to work your log very consistent like every other , so no pulling of yarn or tight knitting.

just finished full sizedslipstitch afghan.i used mostly leftovers from other projects. i am surprized at how beautiful it is - the back as well as the front. i never used the 5th log; i substituted a pattern i found on the internet. anne anderson

I gave the pattern 3 stars because the colors really are gorgeous. As a previous reviewer stated not all the logs fit well. I did change a few of the logs (not liking log number 6). I also added a crochet boarder to keep the afghan from rolling on the edges. The back isn't the prettiest, but I use mine for show. My afghan isn't blocked in the image.

Slip Stitch Sampler Lapghan Reviewed by Christina Powell on 2014-01-05 **
This pattern appears to be beautiful, but there are some fundamental flaws with the design of the piece.

Logs 3 and 5 are not well suited to this piece and "pucker" the entire work so it is skewed.

Also, log 4 and 6 have looser stitches, by way of design and cause one end to be larger and looser then the other.

While the work is beautiful, it's clear heavy blocking was required to even out the piece. If that was the case, it should be included in the directions.

Really disappointed and will need to rethink the logs and placement of the logs to ensure an even piece.
