    I would love to see a tutorial on this. You have taught me quite a bit in the last year when it comes to crochet. I’ve made things I probably would of never attempted if it weren’t for your great teaching skills and your videos.

    YES PLEASE MIKEY A TUTORIAL!! πŸ™‚

    I would love a tutorial for that pattern. Patterns like that intimidate me too.

    Don’t think it is difficult, just a pain in the you know…. I am not fond of sewing nor all those colour changes, which mean a lot of ends to weave in. However, in the right colours, it would be stunning. For me, this would be a UFO. probably for years, until I frogged it!

    I finished my corner to corner afghan this past Sunday and spent the last two days looking through patterns for the next project (Christmas gifts in progress), I saw your post and decided to give it a try. We’ll see how it turns out.

    I have never made an afghan like that but I did a cushion cover once. I would like to do a larger project in that style.

    Long ago I fell in love with log cabin thanks to Mason-Dixon Knitting. When I learned to crochet this spring (thanks to you), I let go of that and focused my attention on granny squares. While I have an 8-bit project in mind, I am very intrigued by this and would love to learn. Thanks for everything πŸ™‚

    Long ago I fell in love with the beautiful log cabin patterns in the Mason-Dixon Knitting book. When I finally learned to crochet this spring, I let go and granny squares took over my world. While I have an 8-bit idea in the works, this definitely intrigues me. As always, thank you for everything.

    I love it. It is a tie to my quilt heritage but created with a different fiber art. Color choices and placement can make this look a zillion different ways.

    Please do the tutorial Mikey! Also, would you be interested in doing any plarn projects? Perhaps after your cruises you could look into it???

    I have made a throw such as this, initially complex which turned into something very easy. I love the crocheted “quilts”, and look for patterns I can interpret into crochet. A tutorial? oh please do, Mikey, it would make things simpler for folks all round. And yes, I still have problems with those darn ends!

    I’ve attempted blocks like this and they’ve never come out correctly. Tension problems, etc, I guess.

    Please make a video! I can only crochet something if you or one of the other few people I follow make a video!!! My grandnother taught me to crochet but passed away before she could teach me how to read patterns so I have to watch youtube. I love your tutorials and this bkanket looks beautiful I would love to make one for my momma.

    Looks like an interesting tutorial for you, Mikey. I’m thinking it should be Fall Colours. Like, burgandy, teal, light brown, bright green. Also would be a GREAT challenge for you.

    I did one similiar to this just this summer! I had not picked a crochet hook in over a decade and this is what caught my interest. It was much easier than I thought it would be! So much fun to do. I still have to finish blocking some of the thirty-six blocks and sew it together, can’t wait to see it completed and given to someone very special!

    Do the tutorial! And show how to hide ends as you go. I so do not like to “knot & hide.”

    I think I’d be very tempted do this if there were a graph included. All those written instructions are a bit daunting for a beginner like me. A video tutorial would be very helpful too! (;-))

    I tried one very similar to this but gave up because my squares were not coming out all the same size. It’s very important to keep you guage consistent to create the right widthand matching length. I was creating rectangles, got frustrated and moved on to a different pattern.

    I have made 2 of the crochet double wedding ring afghans. I think afghans that look like quilts give a twist on both quilting and crocheting. They are beautiful.

    This one is on my “wish project” list. I wish that someday I’ll have some time to do it. I’ve seen different colorways and they almost always look great.

    Last year I made the Red Heart pattern called Autumn Log Cabin Throw for my son and his family. They were blown away (as was I because it was so beautiful that I had to think twice about parting with it. The pattern was easy to follow, and I used your method of completing each round on each motif as I went along. What I really liked about the pattern was that the various rows used some different stitches which provided a gorgeous texture and eliminated the boredom of doing the same stitch on a large project.

      I just looked at that pattern after reading your comment. That is a beautiful afghan and I hadn’t seen this pattern before. I am SO going to have to make it! Thanks for sharing.

      Then you’ll need to give us tips tracey. πŸ™‚ Did you have to do a lot of blocking after you finished? Do you connect as you go or connect afterward?

    I would very much like to see this as a tutorial. I’ve seen several patterns that are based on quilts and, since I’m not a quilter, I really like to attempt a crochet version.

    This pattern is confusing to me. I am sure it is easy if I just sit down and take the time to read through the pattern a few times first. My other problem is choosing colors. Love different shades of green but what to pair them with and when is my problem. Mikey, if you figure it out first, please do a video for me. You are great at them and I learn a lot.

    Please make a video, I need all help and sage advice you been known to give. Making one with holiday colors, (reds,greens, whites, and multis of them). Need something for my new home after I get married. Been trying come up with pattern/design that would work with yarn in the packed full stash walk-in closet. Who needs it for clothes when you need yarn-storage. FiancΓ© has seen the extra large box but not the closet yet.

    Love this type of afghan. Being a quilter, as well as a crocheter and knitter, the look appeals to me. I haven’t tried this type of pattern either, but have a few different ones, both knit and crochet bookmarked for the future. Would love to see a tutorial on this!

    Mikey, this pattern is SO simple really. I have used this pattern on a couple of afghans and positioned the blocks differently on each. It is a stunning afghan, however you place the blocks. Compared to some of the things you have made…this is a cake walk, honest!

    • September 3, 2013 at 4:06 pm

      Hmm ok, I see after reading further… The pattern I have used, the squares are done individually and then sewn together. It makes for a much simpler task. I don’t think this pattern is “difficult” but am not a fan of the way it is written.

    Looks like an interesting tutorial for you, Mikey. I’m thinking it should be Fall Colours. Like, organes, browns, golds & greens.
