I made this afghan, my first big project, using a pattern from the Leisure Arts book Flower Garden Afghans, by Rena V. Stevens. I used Lion Brand Wool Ease yarns. I loved the patterns because they are so different, as you can see the flowers and vines are overlaying the base layer, but are actually crocheted at the same time, not tacked on later. This photo shows a close up of a "berry" panel that also features vines and leaves.

Step 1: Two Panels
This photo shows both the "berry" panel and the simpler "vine" panel.The finished afghan has 3 "berry" panels and 4 "vine" panels joined by a trellis-like chain stitch.
Step 2: A Larger View
The finished afghan is 72" by 51". I get distracted easily, so it took me over a year to finish this-but I am really glad I did.
Step 3: Cozy!
I hope you liked the Climbing Vines afghan, too. Thanks for visiting!
