Ahzryn Briar Rose Blanket

tunisian blanket squares

I came across photos of a baby blanket that I fell in love with, but couldn’t find a pattern. I decided to recreate what I saw, hoping it would come out right. I was very pleased with my result, which was quite different in execution. My version is here

I teach crochet, and my ladies asked to make the blanket. I decided to find the designer. I placed posts on a fb pages I belong to. The result was amazing! I found her! And many, many hookers asked for a pattern. Tammy only had a brief explanation on her Ravelry project, and I got requests for a proper pattern over and over. Tammy asked that I write the pattern as she didn’t know how to, so I did.

I decided to add a project to Ravelry, linking to her original project. Here it is:
