Left Handed? Because of the directionality of this pattern, I wasn’t able to flip the video like I normally do. But in real life it’s an easy fix – just turn counterclockwise instead of clockwise when moving from block to block. Otherwise it’s all the same!
I hope that this video answers any lingering questions you might have had about the Easy Log Cabin Afghan! Be sure to click the links above for more info on the items seen in the video, as well as to get the full written pattern and graphic!

Thank you so much for this video! I started a log cabin pattern in the beginning of the summer and put it down because I was so confused. You have made it so simple!!!! Now I can finish it!
😀 I’m so glad to hear it Linda, thank you!
If I wanted to create a rectangle rather than a square, what is the modification for the first couple of blocks?
You would just need to make the first row longer – and figure it out from there. The blocks won’t all be even though.
Thank you for this video.
You are very welcome Cynthia!
I am almost finished with this pattern and loving it. I’m a lefty and it works out nicely. I printed out the pattern and check off every time I complete a block. It’s helped a bunch!
Thanks again for a wonderful pattern!
I’m so glad to hear it! Thank you Megan!
That is so neat! I love that style of afghans. Thanks for sharing!
🙂 Thank you Clotilde!
I absolutly love this pattern! I am on my last skein and this will be my first successful full size blanket! SO thank you for that! I have a question though, what kind of border do you think would work for this, if any? And I am using the same yarn, Textures, do you think I will need to block it once finished?
Hi Breanna! Thank you! I included border/edging instructions in the pattern, but you could certainly use a different one if you like! I didn’t find it needed blocking at all. 🙂
Thanks so much. Love the video. I have a question. One place says use size I hook and another says size J. Shi h is it?
Hi Kathryn! It’s J for the pattern – I just used I for the tutorial because it was a different yarn. You should use whatever hook size gets you gauge. 🙂
This is second attempt. I need to know what size needle to use. One plCe says I and another says J. Please let me know.
The pattern calls for a J hook when using the recommended yarn. I switched to an I for the video because I used a different yarn for the tutorial. 🙂
Hi I’m loving this pattern, but I have a question regarding the chain 2, turn. Will that be considered the first stitch for the subsequent rows?
Hi Joann, and thank you! No, it doesn’t count. That’s spelled out in the written pattern: https://www.mooglyblog.com/easy-log-cabin-afghan/ 🙂
Thanks Tamara! I figured it out after watching your video and working it out myself! I’m almost finished with my first blanket. I’ll be making two to be donated to my church ‘s annual auction. I’ll post photos on Facebook when they’re finished.
So glad to hear it! Thanks Joann!
Thank you so much for the video. I was totally confused until seeing this and even though I am left-handed I was able to follow. Now I am less afraid to attempt the log cabin afghan…
Hello Gigi! I’m so glad it helped! 🙂
Thank you so much for this pattern. I finally found one that is easy to understand. I’m using it as a stash buster. Again thank you.
I’m so glad you like it, thank you Toshia!
