Here is my new 12″ Afghan Square Pattern – Called English Garden Afghan Square. I was inspired by lovely formal gardens and the misty bright colors of Scheepjes Stone Washed XL. This design is currently for sale on Ravelry and would look wonderful as a full afghan. I was thinking of switching up the colors on each block but using the same pattern for all squares.
The pattern is suitable for the intermediate crocheter or adventurous beginner. There are a few rounds which require very careful pattern-reading but it’s fun with a satisfying result. I am presenting this block as a guest designer on Margaret MacInnis’ Ravelry board, where we are CAL’ing to 12″ afghan blocks in her BAMMM SHAZAAM 2016 CAL. Check it out! Here is a discount coupon code to take $3.00 off the price, good until end of 2016. BAMMM2016
