The log cabin afghan is finally finished

18 Comments

Hooray! This is the largest crochet project that I’ve ever undertaken, and at one point, I thought it’d never be finished. Finally it is though and I’m chuffed to bits with it.

I went for the wiggly design when putting it all together and I really like how it looks. Here it is, pretending to be a rug.

And draped over a single bed. It’s quite a nice size for that.

If that’s slightly out of focus, it’ll be because I was standing on a cushioned chair to get the right angle and I was wobbling a bit on the bouncy surface. Only a little wobble, I hasten to add. I was in no danger.

And another to show the joins. I used that zip method which was very easy to do and I like the effect.

One last photo of it in its new home – on the back of Stephen’s sofa. Now if he needs a quick nap, he can snuggleΒ under his blanket.

I’ve got a fair bit of yarn left and I’m thinking of making a matching cushion with it. Not yet though as I’ve got a couple of other projects in progress and several more lined up.

  1. Wow, it looks great. Very patchworky. I love that patchwork/crochet crossover. Well done. It’s the kind of project that can seem huge but I find it easier to view it in stages. Breaks it into smaller achievable chunks and makes it seem do-able.

      I did like doing it as granny squares. As you say, it made it seem more do-able, especially seeing the pile of completed squares growing.
