    I love this! Thanks for posting this about the daisy blanket! I was just holding the daisy blanket my mom made me (62 years ago) a few days ago. Some of the daisys are disintegrating & every once & awhile I hold it to see if mom can send me her tho’ts from heaven about what I can do to save it. I’m thinking framing the portion of it that’s still in good shape but am unsure. Anyway, I just love that this technique is still being used.

      Yes, frame it! A big shadow-box would be awesome! I just got the offer for some large crochet coverlets that my great-grampa made . . . they need a lot of repair and some stain-removal . . . I need to think of how to save these gems! I think I’ll do some research into preservation, and if you come up with anything, let me know!

    Can you please post the amount of yarn needed to make the afghan?

      The afghans are just inspiration for the flower pattern and the afghans are made with a flower loom. I’m guessing lots and lots of yarn!

    Lovely I think your version is actually nicer than the flower loom version!

      Thanks! It’s for sure quicker than the loom — that I do know.

    I started my daisy blanket, its so easy and grows very quickly, thank you for your pattern, I gave mine to my mum for a mother day gift she loved it.

    I made this for my Mom 30/40 years ago. My daughter is asking for me to make her one and I can’t seem to find the pattern. It was completely crocheted, not made on a loom and the flowers were connected afterwards. Can anyone tell me where/how to purchase this pattern. Daughter wants this for 40th birthday. Please help!
