So dainty, so sweet, so demure. These are the words that appropriately describe this Rosebud Throw. I would like to make this throw to give to my daughter on her wedding day., or to a favorite niece on her wedding day. I'm trying to visualize if the background will look good in a dark color, probably black or royal blue. Hmmm. I guess it will.

It is also in the pattern above under Embroidery: chart 2 a little deceiving as it is not an embroidery chart.

I read through this pattern, and I have a feeling that not all the instructions are listed. On Panel A Rows 3-147, it states to Work in afghan st and bobbles following Stitch Guide for Panel A. I cannot find a stitch guide here. Would you please check the pattern and make sure that it is complete? I would really like to make this for a friend, and I am not sure how to proceed. Thank you!

I was able to find the Stitch Guide for Panel A. Go to www.redheart.com and search for the rosebud throw pattern. The pattern is 3 pages long with the last page being the stitch guide.
