My Rose Garden Afghan Pattern is a story stitch sampler afghan, but instead of random crochet stitches this pattern tells a story of the love of a garden.

A combination of floral crochet stitches between rows of saddle stitches forms the rows of roses and flowers, between pathways and grassways of a garden. 

Our Rose Garden blanket brings together the vibrant colors of a rose garden, with the texture of the roses themselves.

The inspiration for this design comes from my own garden. Every flower is unique, as each person is unique. The same love I have for these flowers, I have for my family and friends—and this pattern is an ode to both!

The combination of floral crochet stitches between rows of saddle stitches forms the rows of roses and flowers, between pathways and grassways of a garden. 

This afghan is perfect for anyone who loves to crochet or loves gardening. This afghan makes for a great gift for friends, family members and even yourself!

Each stitch pattern has a variety of stitch combinations

Easy to work up, the pattern is easily adjustable to accommodate size requirements, with detailed instructions for making the blanket bigger or smaller, with a variety of blanket size information included to take the guesswork out of resizing the pattern.
