Rose Crocheted Afghan

This is just about the sweetest crocheted afghan ever! I rescued it from a flea market a couple weeks ago, and have now completed a few repairs where joined blocks had pulled apart so that it's all ready for Friday Flea Market. With lovely old fashioned 'granny' squares ~ every other one has a pink rose with green leaves ~ this afghan is worked in cotton thread and represents hours and hours of effort! It measures 88" by 72" not including the 5" knotted fringe along three sides.

Lovely layered pink petals ~

Please notice that most of the squares are worked in snowy white, while some are done in a more creamy white color.

Lots of ways to use this pretty piece; it's cheerful and feminine, and ready for your cottage ~ it looks charming draped over a wicker chair, but would also make a darling bed cover. You'll find it in Vintage Linens at Rose Meadow Cottage Designs.

  1. I've seen a few of these over the last few years at our local antique/booth store. They are so pretty but I wouldn't trust mine to survive with the Boston Terror-ier!!
