FO: Great-Grandson's Log Cabin done!
My Ravelry notes

I'm so glad to have it done. US15 needles and super chunky yarn are hard on the hand muscles. Those final outside logs were WORK.

Final size: 46" x 50"....perfect for putting baby on the floor.





Here is my Great-Grandson, due in June!

Very nice. I tried to find a pattern for the log cabin on ravelry. I found one that was suppose to be easy and free, however I cannot download it. Would you know where I could find one- an easy one.? I would like to make one for my grandson. I have 3 colors I would like to use for it. I started to knit blocks and then sew them together but I did not like how it looked. I would like to make one where stitches are added. Thanks

I tried to download that free log cabin pattern, too, from the knit-o-matic website that is accessible from Ravelry...but both of my download attempts were unsuccessful. There is something wrong with their software or their website itself IMO.

I learned the fundamentals of log cabinning from the Mason-Dixon book. You can find a log cabin project page at Ravelry by typing Mason-Dixon log cabin into the pattern search. They offer a free log cabin pattern, the Moderne Baby Log Cabin. I've knit that one several times.

But if you want to learn the other log cabin style like my black-red-grey-cream blanket, you might have to buy the book from Amazon, and a link for the book is on the Mason-Dixon log cabin project page at Ravelry. Or maybe your local library has one in stock.

BTW, the book is worth every dollar! It's their best book ever!
