The instructions for this throw are given in full on another page on the sister site If you have an account on allfreecrochet then your log on info will be the same for that site also. The pattern is from Coats and Clark. I have not yet checked their site to see if this pattern is still posted there just by off chance they might have additional photos.

When I got seriously back into crochet, this elegant throw was one of the first things I wanted to make. It was the first time I had attempted a relief pattern, and it was much easier than I thought it would be. Sadly, I was still dealing with life and working full time, so I only got as far as a few squares. I did turn a couple of squares into pllows, but I would love to finish that complete throw.

One of the most elegant and beautiful throws I've ever seen. Way over my skill level but I will aspire to create this one day.

This throw is very beautiful. I love the freshness and elegant look of the color, style, and motif border. It reminds me of an afghan I made many years ago. It too was an Irish design look and had bobbles. Bobbles are so much fun to make. I would definitely keep the fringe.

What a gorgeous throw. It has the traditional keepsake look. What a beautiful heirloom this would make. I am not having any difficulties following the pattern. I don't know what problem some are talking about. I do agree that I will omit the fringe. Over time they just don't look that well.

When the designer shows the final product in a bland monotone color it just throws me off a little. The finished throw is elegant and pleasing but I often wonder if it would be that much better in a bold color like a rich purple or vibrant orange as the primary color.

This crochet Aran Nosegay crochet afghan could easily become a family heirloom. I appreciate that there is a video tutorial provided as I am sure there will be a few times I will need to view it to make these motifs.Yarn is on sell this week so guess what I will be buying?

Such a beautiful pattern. I see lots of folks are having problems with the directions. I plan to do a sample square before purchasing yarn for this one and will refer to some of the suggestions for making it work. I m not a fan of fringe so will figure out some other edging..

shared the link, but picture is not the same as the pattern shown

I do lots of crocheting and I loved this pattern, however, it just does not work out. The pattern is not correct, stitches do not match up with, Bubbles placement is not right either. I see a lot of people are have this problem. Can it be corrected? Please help. Thanks.

I too am having trouble with this beautiful pattern, but I am determined to master it. Any help would be appreciated. The rows to create the stems just do not match up. Has anyone decided that the pattern is incorrect. If so can a correction please be printed?

I have been crocheting for years but have been baffled by this pattern. I also corrected rows 7,9 and 11. I am having a horrific time with the motif border...Rnd 1 is very confusing as rnd 2....HELP!!!

i crochet a lot but this pattern just does not work out. the fpdc don't line up. so sad because i really want to make this. i have ripped out rows numerous times.

Would the person who has completed the aran nosegay crochet throw, please tell me how to crochet the center pattern especially the flower stems? I plan to start it soon. Thanks

Well, 2 months later, I actually completed the throw!!! Looking back, my initial comment is laughable. I just had to block out the negative & focus on the written pattern. It worked out very well. I did not include the fringe because the recipient, my niece, has a two year-old that still pulls on strings. :) The only "issue" was a three-stitch bobble or a five-stich bobble. I did the five-stitch and needed to use more yarn than indicated. As luck would have it, I could not match the shade I had used, so I did the final 3 trim rows in a complimentary color. I'm extremely happy with the is my sister, who wants one. Thank you so much!

A better picture of this throw can be found at this site, I also corrected the end sc count at the end of rows7, 9, 11, to read the same as at the begenning of these rows. After that I had no problems with the directions. The better pic gives you a better view of the design. I hope this helps.

By Jove, I've got it! The issue is within the "repeat" brackets. I find that the last "repeat" should exclude the single crochets (within the bracket) AFTER the last FPDC. In other words the count will be correct by counting all single crochets to the end of the row, after the last FPDC. :) I'm on a roll, now!!! nina

Okay...I too am having problems :) Did anyone come up with a solution? :) Please share - Thank you - Nina

My bad, I found a better picture of the throw. With more to detail to the picture, it is easy to see why I was confused. I was trying to line up sticthes that were part of the design. The directions make more sence to me with a better view of the design.

@randkfarms 3136131, glendaweath70 4701468, I'm sorry to hear you are having problems regarding the pattern. It was submitted by Coats & Clark; we suggest you try contacting them for further clarification. Here is their contact info: Hope this helps! --Editor of AllFreeCrochet

There has to be a mistake starting with row 7. The count is off and throws the whole pattern off. Corrections need to be made.

I am having the same problem with these directions. I there is a mistake on these rows of the pattern. any help would be good.

i do alot of crochet work, but having trouble with this pattern. row 7 then row 8 which is row 2, then when i do row 9, my fpdc doesn't line up with the previous ones below. what does "corresponding st 2 rows below exactly mean?" from row 7. when i do row 9 the fpdc doesn't match on the third one. want to do as a christmas gift. does anyone have a hint for me?

This is beautiful. I have this on my "to do" list.

This is a beautiful throw and easy to understand pattern, I will be making it. Thank you for the design.
