American Beauty Afghan Square Free Crochet Pattern

Posted by on May 1, 2012 in Afghan Square | 4 comments

I decided I wanted to design a floral afghan square for the April M.O.M. in our Baker’s Dozen group on Ravelry.  I picked a rose, and added some leaves. It still wasn’t big enough, so I added some granny square rounds.

Here is my free pattern.

  1. Very pretty thanks for sharing

  2. Nice of you to share your square pattern. What’s M.O.M. ?? I’m not up to speed on that group?

    • M.O.M. stands for Member Of the Month. Each month it is someone’s turn to receive the afghan squares. We rotate out who makes them & who receives them. The group is called Baker’s Dozen.

  3. This would make cute pillows.
