Macaroon Blossom Afghan | Softer Version | Finished

 After many hours of fussing with the details,
I present a softer version of the Macaroon Blossom Afghan:


Springtime fun!

Original Pattern: Macaroon Blossom Afghan
Designer: Astri Elisabeth
Yarn: Scheepjes Stone Washed

Find the original pattern in the original colors (not these) by clicking on any of the following 
Apple Blossom Dreams shops:

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 and last row of the border because it kind of looks like leaves, as well.

 New Jade is a softer green than the original pattern.
 Pink Quartzite for the stamen and the leaf squares and much of the border. 

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 springtime crochet friends!

  1. This is looking stunning in these softer colours, Astri! I love the harmony of the pinks and mauves!

  2. Like a May days :) Lovely job.

  3. Simply delicious! You have such an amazing eye for color. And the design is so lovely. I really like how the little joining squares work with the round motifs.
