After spending days looking at afghan/throw patterns, I decided to design my own, simply because I couldn’t find something that would look perfect with my living room décor. Inspired by log-cabin afghans, which are typically knit, I drew up a design that worked with just three colors—black, white and gray in my case—and would have a clean, modern look that wouldn’t look out of place in a minimalist-style living room.

This pattern is very easy to follow and is suitable for beginners. The only stitch used is the hdc. Gauge isn’t really an issue since you can measure as you go, and as long as your own stitches are consistent, the blocks will line up. And the best part? It works up quickly as one piece so you won’t have to sew blocks together at the end!
