Mariposa Throw, colorful rainbow afghan with rectangles framing single stemmed flower, crochet pattern by Susan Carlson of Felted Button | Colorful Crochet Patterns

Mariposa Throw Revealed!

Wahooo! The Mariposa Throw is here!!

 

 

I named it this because of the single stemmed 3-petaled Mariposa Lily that grows on rocky slopes of the mountains of the Western US where I live. Add a rainbow of colors--typical Sue--and it cheers any space, but you could easily work it in shades that match your decor and suit your style. I had even thought about flowers in pinks, framed in white with a soft cream or golden honey for the border. Or what about gray frames, gray-leaf green stems and a white background. Now that would be elegant! 



The framed flowers might look challenging, but they are actually quite simple to construct, and the abundance of texture makes the flowers pop up like they have bloomed. The chevron-like arrangement of the motifs is pretty nifty, too! Color, texture, options, unique. I'm pretty happy with it, I must say!

It's gots load of pictures--50 in all--so don't be intimidated by what you might think is complex! I really try to help you through! You can find the pattern in my Felted Button Shop here or on Etsy here.

I'll post on another day about my Design Wars experience and the process of designing this little baby! It was definitely a process, but what a rewarding experience! 
 
I hope you love it as much as I do.
