Lush Garden Bavarian Stitch Afghan Instructions!!

Hey all!

I finally got some instructions written out for you to be able to create your own Lush Garden Bavarian Stitch Afghan.

I did not include written instructions for the individual squares because they are based off one simple pattern. Since the pattern itself is very confusing to read, I opted to include the link to the YouTube video that I used to familiarize myself with the Bavarian Stitch pattern. 


This is the afghan completed (final size is 72" x 52"- the squares themselves are 12"x12"). All of the instructions are included for what I did to get my afghan to look like this, other than the Bavarian Stitch instructions.  I feel like I need to let you know that this is NOT a beginner project. If you are not a strong crocheter, you will become discouraged by this pattern. For your sanity, please just be aware of that, because I won't be able to guide you through learning this pattern step-by-step. 


If you have any questions about the pattern, you may contact me, however I won't be able to help you if you are a beginner that has chosen to attempt this project. 

Following are  few of the individual squares and the color combinations I went with. I wanted each square to remind me of something in or around a garden.

Your afghan is absolutely STUNNING! I've never seen this pattern before. I appreciate your warning about this not being suitable for a beginner. I'm not new to crochet but I'm definitely not a 'strong' crocheter yet. If I were, I'd be all over this pattern.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful afghan and pattern. I follow you regularly and always appreciate your beautiful work.
