Therapeutic Magic Ball Log Cabin/Miter Noro Afghan

Noro Kureyon, in many colorways.

Left overs and purchased on sale, at random.

Addi circs US6 (4.00mm)

Based on Log Cabin and Miter techniques.

Have some Noro left overs? Make a magic ball.

Start with a log cabin.

Keep going until you have the width you like.

Try to weave in the ends as you go.

Knit one row of miter squares on two ends.

Knit two rows garter. BO

Knit a row of miter rectangles on top of the squares.

Knit two rows garter. BO.

Pick a neutral solid color (Lambs Pride Worsted pairs well with Kureyon since it is also a single-spun.) and do a 3 stitch applied iCord. Sure its tedious, but its worth it!

Get some tea and snuggle on the couch.

You can see some more detailed photos of the progress here
