Macaroon Blossom Afghan | Softer Baby Version | WIP

While the Blossom-Circle-Square pattern is out for testing and editing,
I'm starting up another Macaroon Blossom Blanket. 
This one will be a softer version for a stroller or bassinet blanket. 

👶🌸🍃❇🍃 🌸👶
Original Pattern: Macaroon Blossom Afghan
Designer: Astri Elisabeth
Yarn: Scheepjes Stone Washed

The pattern can be found by clicking on any of the following shops:

Clicking on the above photo will take you directly to the Etsy listing, as well.

I'm changing the colors up a bit. 

Two shades of the same color family for the blossom and the circle e.g., Rose Quartz with Tourmaline. 
I'm using New Jade for the leaves which is a softer green than the original pattern
 and Pink Quartzite for the stamen and the leaf squares that will be joining the circles. 
I'll see how much yarn I have left as I'm also thinking the Pink Quartzite 
would be nice for a border to tie in the color of the joining squares.

Please note that Pink Quartzite and Moonstone are interchangeable IMHO.

The Kit for the original Blanket is available at Jimmy Beans Wool.
They also carry individual skeins so you can create your own color scheme! 

and here's to you, my faithful crochet friends!

  1. I absolutely love this softer version, Astri. They are my kind of colours. I've never tried Scheepjes stone-washed as yet!

  2. Wow, it's lovely. And congratulations on your pattern being featured! That's very exciting.
