log cabin using different weights of yarn
I'm thinking of trying a log cabin (probably the "standard" pattern from MDK book) using some yarn from an afghan kit I had bought with 4 yarns: one "curlilocks" (recommended needle size 4 mm - 6 mm), one wool slub (recommended needle size 10 mm), and two others in between.
I have had some success in past with contrasting gauges when fooling around with a suggestion by Jenny Dowde in her book "Freeform Knitting and Crochet"...
This is the finished product:
I was hesitant about the yarns in this particular kit because they are so varied (and almost impossible to frog if one doesn't like the result). However, it turned out OK, I think.
Has anyone tried this? and if so, any tips? (about when to pick up sts, etc?)
