My square was coming out too small, so I added two more rows before working the final round. At that point the longer two edges were at 12", so I used some stiff blocking to pull it into shape (see the links to that process below). But everyone's gauge and tension level are different so be sure to measure as you go, and check your gauge. Learn how to adjust for size HERE to make sure all your squares are the same size. Remember that the 12″ is measured across and up and down – not diagonally corner to corner.
I used a Furls Odyssey hook and Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, and my color scheme was as follows – Row 1-2: Rose Shocking; Row 3-4: Lemon; Row 5-6: Radiant Lime; Row 7-8: Aquamarine; Row 9-10: Aqua; Row 11-12: Rose Shocking; Row 13-14: Lemon; Row 15-16: Radiant Lime; Row 17-18 (added for size): Aquamarine; Edging Rnd 1: Silver Grey.
This square needed strong blocking! To block this square, I used the wet blocking method and a Chetnanigans BlocksAll Ultra blocking board.

thanks for this run-down. When all quiets down (?), I would like to make an afghan for ME. Now I Have all the kinks!!+++.And a question for you -Somewhere I saw a picture of the easy log cabin afghan worked with lovely vibrant colors. Can you tell me the brand and colorway for this pattern I don't think it was Textures. Best regards. Jo
Hi Jo! I have two patterns that use the Log Cabin layout, one in my book, Quick Crochet for the Home (see the image at the very bottom of the page!) and this one, which does use Textures. https://www.mooglyblog.com/easy-log-cabin-afghan/
I am confused, I have (for decades) believed than an infinity was always twisted at the end then joined. what did i miss? I've made so many because they were so popular because of that technique.
Hi Rita! Infinity scarves can be twisted before joining - that is called a mobius. 🙂 But it's optional - just a matter of which style you prefer, really!
