Title: Moderne Log Cabin Baby Blanket
Post by: rebeldaisy on July 02, 2007 10:16:10 AM
This is from Mason-Dixon Knitting and is most of the Moderne Log Cabin Baby Blanket for my niece/nephew to be.  I changed the edging from that suggested in the book to an attached/applied I-cord.  I also changed some of the bigger rectangles because I wanted to avoid the intarsia.  Disclaimer:  blanket is much more rectangular and even in real life then it appears in the picture!



I used Shine Sport from Knitpicks and US 5 needles.  I wish I would have kept better track of how much yarn I used!  The pictures are pre-blocking and washing.  I'm going to wait to do that until its closer to the baby shower to do that!

For anyone on Ravelry my name is Rebeldaisy on it too.  Come be my friend!

That is so gorgeous. A friend of mine just mentioned someone is expecting and I just might have to make one of those.
Great job!
How do you apply/attach the i-cord?
And I'm crazy jealous. I can't wait to get into ravelry!

Very nice!  I've been wanting to try that pattern. 

Did you like Shine yarn?  I've heard good things about it.  I might order some with my next KnitPicks order.

Kelliz:  I do like the shine sport.  I think it's very soft and machine washable! I cannot say how it holds up over time or through multiple washings yet though. 

iheartzombies:  The edging really did finish this, without the edge it looked a little bit incomplete. I followed directions out of a book, but there are plenty of good explanations  online!  (http://www.keyboardbiologist.net/knitblog/archives/000344.html/)This one from Keyboard biologist is great because of the included photos!  And I LOVE ravelry!  It's such a genius concept.
