Spring has sprung so there’s no better time to be working on a floral project, like this gorgeous afghan crochet pattern with its 3D relief and pretty borders.
Rebekah’s Flower Afghan – Free Crochet Pattern
I was having my morning stroll around Ravelry today when this gorgeous floral blanket caught my eye.
Just look at those beautiful three dimensional flowers!
I think it has a really vintage-y vibe to it, and I love the colour combination.
The pattern was designed by Aimee Cunningham and it’s an easy one to make.
You start off by crocheting the flowers, then you add the border, then you crochet the square, and finally you join the squares into an afghan.
Then you add the gorgeous border, which is a combination of a v stitch for the grass and sweet little rose clumps.
The finished piece measures around 42 inches by 61 inches depending on your gauge.
The pattern is written in US terminology and the stitches you need to know are:
- st – stitch
- sc – single crochet
- dc – double crochet
- tr – treble crochet
- hdc – half double crochet
You’ll be using a size H crochet hook and about 16 skeins of cotton yarn.
Hop on over to Ravelry and add this pattern to your projects list before you forget!
I’d really appreciate it if you could then save this to your crochet board on Pinterest to help spread the word about this beautiful floral afghan pattern.
