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

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:
