Dahlia Bloom Afghan Square Crochet Pattern

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I designed this Dahlia Bloom Afghan Square crochet pattern, along with my Aubrieta Bloom Afghan Square Crochet Pattern, to crochet into a larger garden inspired afghan and I must say they go very nicely together!! The Dahlia Bloom Afghan Square is a 12-in. afghan square worked up in 5 colors of worsted weight yarn. I can already imagine all the lovely color combinations you will make!

I have included a stitch diagram along with the written pattern for those of you who prefer to follow along in a more visual way. Hope you enjoy working it up as much as I did!

    These squares are beautiful. I hope that I can put them together and have them just as lovely. I have been reading patterns for years and appreciate the two pattern instructions! IF needed, one can visually clear up my confusion in reading the other.
    Thank you for being here with creative, lovely patterns.
