Snowy Woods Log Cabin Blocks

My Snowy Woods Log Cabin Blocks are based on the classic Log Cabin quilt block. The center squares feature motifs adapted from my Snowy Woods Cowl: two entwined trees, and three fir trees. Two blocks will make a 16” pillow that knits up quickly in bulky yarns such as Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Superwash Bulky or Berroco Vintage Chunky. They require just one 100g/135 yard skein in each of three colors for the two blocks. Knit a matching throw with more blocks; you’ll get 2 coordinating blocks from each 3 skeins of yarn.

Once the center squares are made, the simple log cabin logs are knit in garter stitch. It’s perfect knitting for knit nite or multi-tasking. You can use these blocks in many ways. One of my test knitters made two pillows with her blocks, sewing each block to a handmade pillow case. She plans to knit a blanket as a housewarming gift. What will you do with yours?
