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?
