It’s already time for the second C2C Plants and Flowers square! Wow, where does the time fly to? Honestly I do not know but I do know that I’m excited for this second month’s of square. I hope you like new C2C Rose Afghan Square as much as I do.
First of all, I want to say with this square I wanted to get a little abstract. I wanted to use the negative space of the square (the tan) to tell the story of the square. It’s all about what you can see and what you can’t with this – it’s all supposed to work. I hope it does. I had some negative feedback on Instagram on it and, wow, it hurt my confidence. But I have recovered and I’m pretty happy overall with how this design turned out. I did, however, include a second graph below if you’d like to make the center of the flower slightly darker for a higher contrast in the final square.
Anyway, this is the second square in the year-long CAL. Don’t forget to head back to the first square, January’s Cactus Square, so you can get caught up. And make sure to tag me in your square photos on Instagram so I can share them! I love seeing them, truly.
Check out last year’s 2020’s C2C Coffee CAL, 2019’s Coffee Tapestry Squares, and the 2018’s Tapestry Afghan Squares.
I hope you all are healthy and happy and like this new design. Please be kind to one and other, wear your masks, wash your hands, and be safe friends!
Please note: I was provided the yarn for this pattern by Lion Brand Yarn for the purposes of making this design, without compensation. I wasn’t provided the yarn with the expectations of positive or negative reviews but I did enjoy using this yarn, I’ve used it many times and it’s always a great worsted acrylic yarn.
