Rosebud Afghan

By:

6 Comments

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.

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.

The knitting needle size is 10 or 6mm and the yarn weight is worsted, which is a #4.
