Y'all go visit Erin's blog and see her completed Granny Log Cabin Afghan! It's so pretty!
I'm crossing my fingers and hoping Blogger doesn't screw up the line spacing so it's easy to print.
I've number the rows in the above picture since I don't have any of the other tutorial pictures here. This is Erin's picture and her work.
Granny Log Cabin
Worsted Weight Yarn
Note: Traditional Log Cabins have a red or yellow center. (I had no idea! How interesting.)
For a potholder, also crochet a solid granny square and attach to the back with sc all around; edge.
For afghan, make five rows of each color instead of two.
Crochet a 2-round granny square. Fasten off.
Starting at a corner, fasten on new color with a sl st.
Chain 2 - this is equal to 1 DC. 2 more DC in this corner to form a 3 DC cluster.
3 DC cluster in next space (middle). 3 DC cluster in corner. Chain 2 and turn work over.
Chain 2 from previous step equals first DC. 3 DC clusters in next two spaces. 1 DC to finish row. Fasten off; turn clockwise for new color.
Starting at a corner, fasten on new color with a slip stitch. Chain 2 - this is equal to 1 DC.
2 more DC in this corner to form a 3 DC cluster. 3 DC cluster in next two spaces.
3 DC cluster in corner. Chain 2 and turn work over.
Chain 2 from previous step equals first DC.
3 DC clusters in next three spaces. 1 DC to finish row. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Flip work over so that the “right” side of the center granny is showing.
Turn clockwise and fasten on new color.
Continue crocheting each “log” as explained in Step 2 and Step 3 until the potholder/afghan is as large as you would like it to be.
Thank you very much, Erin, for allowing me to post this condensed version. And thanks for sharing a great pattern with us too!
