Colonial Log Cabin Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

Rnds 1-2 = 2æ" (7 cm). Completed square = 13" (33 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.

Wrongly Named Colonial Log Cabin Afghan Reviewed by Leigh Ann Dalton on 2013-09-14 ***
This pattern, with the color stripes even on both sides of the center square, is actually called "Courthouse Steps". A true "Log Cabin" pattern has a center square (traditionally in red) and the colored strips are in an "L" shape around the center, working out to form each block. Otherwise I like this Afghan, it's quite nice.
