Needlework: Flower Afghan

I made a couple of these afghans years ago and love the finished product.  I came across the pattern recently in  Red Heart's  Afghans & Crochet Classics available on Amazon.com.  It is called "Grand Gardenias" and can be found on page 72.  The finished size is 47"x62" and each square measures
 7 1/2".  Because it is worked in squares, it is a nice project to take along when you are out and about.  
After locating this afghan tucked away in the linen closet, I offered it to my daughter as this is the accent color in her family room.  And she snapped it up. I was happy to see it get a second life in my daughter's home!

So pretty. My grandmother made one of those for me years ago...it had yellow flowers. I know how much work that took. Good job!

I have several afghans, but nothing to compare to this one. It is one of the prettiest I have seen especially with the red. Beautiful job.

This is a stunningly beautiful treasure. Beautiful work. It's great when our daughters take something that we love and the world turns again. 2nd time around or more is a good thing. Smile!
Hugs, Jeanne

This is exactly why I still need to learn to crochet! It's so perfect for Christmastime, but it would also look terrific the rest of the year too. It's fabulous!
Happy REDnesday,
Carol

I love to crochet. Mostly what I make these days are afghans and squares that are then donated to many wonderful charities. This is a really pretty afghan.

Jenn "Rook No. 17" said...

A beautifully made afghan, sure to be enjoyed and treasured by generations!

Thank you so much for sharing your talent on “A Little Birdie Told Me…” at Rook No. 17! With all the parties out there to choose from, it means a lot that you take the time be a part of mine! Warmest wishes, Jenn

Love this afghan. My mom made one just like it the year I was born, 39 years ago. I like your color choices way better than mom's. A brown background with yellow flowers.
