Crochet Spring Garden Afghan
The Spring Garden Afghan consists of 3 different types of granny squares. 1 square is flat, another is a small raised flower and the 3rd is a larger flower.
The design is put together using crochet zig-zag techniques to attach. Simply put, there’s no sewing involved. Finally, there’s an easy to do the border.
The stitch along ended on May 30th, 2019. We are no longer taking submissions for this project. Thank you so much to all who contributed to this incredible stitch along.

- Now that you see the layouts of what you can do with this design, you may want to have fun and graph up different layouts that you think would go best in your blanket. Just know this, if you change the square counts, it could impact how much yarn you use.
- Each square design is the exact same colour for the set. It works well in the plan. However, this is your spring garden, and I wouldn’t be scared to make your sets in different colour options. For example, in week 1, we need to make a set number of regular solid grannies. It suggests they are all the same colour. You may want to think about your design and create squares in different colours. In the future weeks, the same thing, the floral designs were thrown at you, each flower can be a unique colour too to make it pop. I know that this afghan has the potential to be really subtle but also the loud wild garden. Decide what works for you.
- I want you to express your creativity in the design colouring. Use each other as inspiration throughout the stitch along.
