Desert Rose 12 Afghan Square

"The Desert Rose 12" afghan square pattern is a stunning crochet design filled with texture and flowery details. The colors add much of the interest to this thick, warm block, so mix them up to match your living room or bedroom! Besides its original purpose, this afghan square pattern can be used to crochet a cushion, accent pillow, bag, or wall hanging. The design has a bit of a succulent flower feel and could go well with a Boho style bedroom or living room. You could even use the center part of the flower and leaves inside a hoop to create a nature-inspired dream catcher. "

Notes-When color change is indicated, new color is joined in the same st where the previous color fastened off. Rounds that begin with a color change can be started as standing sc, or standing dc sts.
-Begin all rounds in same st as join unless otherwise noted.
-Color changes are merely suggestions. Mix and match to create your own unique style!
