Wonky Log Cabin

designed by Susan Barstein

unlike the traditional log cabin, texture replaces color. the use of multiple stitch patterns creates a wonky version. it won’t lay flat and won’t end up square. we promise!

finished size: 25” x 30” on the wonky side

gauge: 20 sts per 4 inches in stockinette stitch using smaller needle (gauge is not critical for this project)

yarn: 8 skeins weepaca by Big Bad Wool 50% fine washable merino / 50% baby alpaca; 95 yds / 86 m

tools: size 7 (4.5 mm) and a size 8 (5 mm) circular or straight needles

Note: Each log is worked over an even stitch count for 15 rows. Always pick up and bind off on right side of work. If you get off course, simply work an extra row. Feel free to alter use and order of each log.

Skills Recommended: picking up stitches, increasing, decreasing, working various stitch patterns
