This is a lovely pattern, but I'm looking for another one of the same name. The February 22, 1994 issue of Woman's Day (10 years after this pattern) included "A Blanket of Roses", similar to this one but different. Somehow when I cut the pages out to save the pattern, I didn't get page 103/104. Has anyone heard of this other pattern? Thanks for any help in getting the missing page. - Janice M.

I made this afghan in 1996 when I was recuperating from surgery. I made it big enough to fit a full-size bed like a comforter. I have gotten so many compliments on it since then and I still LOVE it! It is a lot of fun to make.

I think this is just stunning! I normally don't like motif crocheting because of all the whipstitching that needs to be done when the motifs are finished, but for this pattern, I'll tough it out. It is absolutely beautiful! This will be gorgeous in our living room when finished. I'm planning on taking my time so this will not be too frustrating and getting it done just in time for the cooler weather in November. I want to enjoy it for the holidays - our holiday colors are cobalt blue, victorian rose and emerald green with white - should be a lovely accompaniment to our holiday - and then springtime decor!

I just finished this afghan in red and it is absolutely beautiful! It is time consuming with the two different types of blocks then sewing them together, but it is well-worth the time you are going to put in it. It took me about 1 month to complete it. Everyone that see's it has got the "WOW" factor.

I did not realize that I have had this pattern and the yarn since 1984!!!! It's one of those patterns I fell in love with, purchased the directions and kit, and have not gotten around to crocheting yet. It is VERY HIGH on my to-do list though, and I'm sure I will be getting to it before too much longer!! :O)
