Oh so gorgeous this Striped Floral Afghan. The colors are so beautiful, they are perfect combination together. The flower embellishments enhanced the beauty of the afghan. So beautiful. I can't wait to start it.

Oh my gosh! This afghan is amazingly beautiful! It is so fresh, so fun, and so unique! Who wouldn't want something like this in their house to proudly display and use for the spring and summer months? I think this is a lovely and thoughtful gift for a housewarming, don't you?

I am very happy that a picture was added because this is truly a gorgeous afghan to be made. No surprise though as it is a contribution of Red Heart. I can always find a great pattern on the Red Heart website. With it currently being Spring, this afghan is true to the season. It will be a welcome addition to the collection.

This is a beautiful striped floral crochet afghan provided by Red Heart. The colors coordinate so well together. It is also a relatively large afghan. This afghan will add a lot of color to any room in your home.

This striped floral afghan is so cheery, bright and perky! I just love it! It makes me feel good just looking at it. Can you imagine the positive vibes this would add to an all white room? Wow! You'd feel like you were in a field of flowers! I also noticed that this pattern uses the Red Heart Super Saver yarn which makes this a very beautiful and economical afghan.

It would be really nice to see a picture of the afghan in order to know if I want to make it.

Hi fran, We recently migrated our project pages to a new template, so some photos aren't displaying properly. We're working to fix them, so please bear with us! :) Thank you, Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Striped floral crochet afghan has an awesome boho look. I love all the colors and how bright it is. An awesome blanket for a little girl to use at a sleepover or just for snuggling while watching TV. Too bad there arent any additional pictures furnished by Red Heart to show how the piece progressed.

The instant I saw this gorgeous Striped Floral Afghan I knew I just have to make it for Amy, a friends little girl. She absolutely adores bright colors and anything with flowers and this one is just perfect for her. Just lately I have been making a lot of smaller, single color items so it is going to be great to work on something large and in pretty colors.
