Apple Blossom Dream Afghan - Published and Listed!

The pattern for the
"Apple Blossom Dream Afghan"
has been published and listed!
Whew, this one was a doozy, the design has been eight years in the making!
Spring is coming!
The "dream" for this design was to create a five petal apple blossom
(with stamen) motif, trying to imitate nature as close as possible. 
A pentagon granny motif worked for the blossom; 
however, pentagons joined together eventually created a round ball.
That was not going to work for the afghan, maybe a pillow, but not an afghan.
Armed with the NVO and his math skills, and a little creativity, the afghan dream came true!

And it's finally here!
 You can find the pattern at either my Etsy shop by clicking here
or
in my Ravelry store by clicking here.

Here's how the listing reads:

Let this pattern guide you in making this lovely apple blossom afghan. Its fresh and soft design is also ideal for many applications. The finished size is approximately 47" x 62" (119 cm x 158 cm) which is perfect for napping or displaying. 
Cozy on up for cooler days/evenings or wrap baby snuggly for a stroll. 
Oh, and think of the color possibilities!

This instantly downloadable 20-page pattern includes plenty of step-by-step photos, as well as, links to videos for extra added assistance. The last two pages of the pattern is a condensed "crochet short-hand" version of the pattern. The pattern is written and verbalized in US crochet terms.

Ideal for an intermediate crocheter. General knowledge of crocheting a granny square is helpful.

And here's the yarn I used:
