Rosebud Afghan



Some of my favorite free afghan knitting patterns are vintage. This Rosebud Afghan, a vintage pattern, is certainly at the top of my favorite's list. Knit with five colors of yarn, this piece is time consuming, but will create a unique piece of decor for your home. This afghan requires duplicate stitch embroidery for completion, but the results are beautiful. Perfect for gardeners and floral enthusiasts everywhere.

This is beautiful... but too difficult and time consuming for me.


Aug 17, 2012

I need to clarify that the size needle is 10.....seems too big...or is it 1.0 ? Only way to contact site is by mail and that seems too time consuming. I also assume it is 4-ply yarn, but then again if it is 1.0 needle that wouldn't work. Help, please. Thanks.

Where is the embroidery chart for the Rosebud Afghan?

The "pattern link" is just a link to another site where you have to sign up to get it. Deceptive!
