Pattern Description:

I designed this afghan in honor of my uncle, Joel, and in memory of my grandmother, Ruth. 100% of the profits will benefit the Alzheimer's Foundation of America.

Yes, crocheters; a version for you is coming :)

This is a variant of the more traditional log cabin afghan. Each square is made individually & is sewn together. It makes for a very portable & easy project, & doesn't take as long as you might think to put together. It's a great stash buster; I used mainly worsted weight yarns, & also used fingering weight held double. Each square takes about 3.5 ounces / 100 grams to complete: 1.7 ounces will be needed for the first 5 sections, & 1.7 ounces for the last 4 sections.
