You remember the 1970’s, right? Bell bottoms, crocheted granny square vests and polyester leisure suits…gone were the bright flower power colors of the 60s and “in” were the earth tone colors of rusts, browns, tans and greens! It was far out, man!!!
Well, Rosina Plane has designed an afghan that is reminiscent of those times and is quite modern as well! It’s a timeless creation that will be available as a 3 part CAL beginning May 14th.
Rosina has written an introduction to the CAL which can be found on Ravelry here. You’ll have the option of purchasing a full pdf of the pattern OR waiting each week for the FREE CAL pattern which will be available on Rosina’s website, Rosina Crochets for a limited time.
The pattern includes clear instructions and lots of photos, making it suitable for any level of experience.
