Feeling Super Quilty

Learn how to make the Linen Log Cabin Square, a fun take on a classic design, from a free crochet pattern by DivineDebris.com

Hi everyone! How’s your week going? Personally, I need to report for jury duty today so I’m feeling a bit anxious. But enough about me and my ordeals, you’re here for the new Linen Log Cabin Square pattern, right?

This square fits right into what’s making me smile right now, the linen stitch. If you saw my Whitney Headband from last month, or my Whitney Poncho on Instagram, you know what I’m talking about. I just love the linen texture! It’s so pretty. Also, for those who are wondering, yes the moss stitch is the same as the linen stitch.

Like my Divine Diamonds Blanket pattern from September, this design is very influenced by quilting. It will also feature a ton of ends to weave in. I’m sorry about that too. Sorry to me, especially, because it’s already been so many ends and I’m not even done with my sample. Which brings me to my next part, I wanted to release this design before I finished my blanket.

Originally I didn’t want to do that, I wanted some lovely photos of me holding the blanket looking all happy but… that didn’t work out. I have a billion other things to work on and realized I wouldn’t have the design out until September if I kept going the way I was. So, yay, here’s the individual square and you and I now get to make the square together! How exciting is that?

So, I hope you join me using all your random bits and ends! It’s a great in-between-other-projects WIP, I know, I’ve been working on it late since November/ early December 😀

Finished Linen Log Cabin Square

And you’re all done! Make sure to block your squares before you seam, especially because not all worsted weights are created equal and this will help your squares be the same size.

Seaming

For the seaming I’m just sewing my squares together but feel free to slip stitch them together like I did on the Divine Diamonds Blanket or any other method of seaming, like the ones I shared in my Coffee Afghan Project, that makes you happy.

  1. I’ve admired your work for awhile now, and this log cabin pattern is topnotched. I was looking for something new and exciting to work on – Found It! Thanks.

      1. Me, too! I have a great baby afghan that begins with a rainbow granny square, which I love to make. This one is definitely on my To-Do list during this self-isolation period. I love the shading!
        Thanks so much for sharing. And thanks for making it free. As a senior on a fixed income, this means a lot.
