Babouska Rose Blanket Tutorial


My new love! The Babouska Rose Blanket. I am making this blanket, and have documented some tips for maximized results, so I decided to write some pattern support.

Related Materials:

See my horrible phone screenshot of the motif chart below… I interpreted the little plus sign in the circle as “SC in the back bars of the stitch indicated.” (Notes: Not the stitch *post*, rather just the back bars. Also, I worked a slip stitch instead of an SC to eliminate extra bulk.)


Here is a square from the pattern, with my modifications that I documented below.

***Due to a high number of requests, I have re-organized my entire collection of free patterns! The bad news is, this pattern has been relocated to my crafter site…

    1. According to the pattern, it’s 5 stitches in each petal for petal rounds 1 & 2, for petal round 3, it’s 7 stitches per petal. I didn’t modify it – came out great!

    1. The chart isn’t mine actually! I don’t know what it means either, but I interpreted it as SC on the back side – where it won’t show.. Like a post stitch.. Good luck! 🙂

  1. Love it I’m crocheting the roses seperatly then sowing them on might be much faster doing it this way , my roses are smaller then these though, and I’m a beginner

  2. Hi

    Do you have any sort of tutorial of how to do the small twist join? Currently making this blanket and real;ly like this join


  3. Hi, I can’t stop admiring your beautiful rose crochet.However how do I read the crochet pattern from the chart.Will appreciate your help in this.

  4. I would like to add the leaves to the babouska rose and subsequently form the granny square. Pls help.Thx

  5. Was wondering how to start the roses. I see above it says what to do starting on the 3rd row. Need to know how to get that far please. Thank you…

    1. Hi there! All I know of is the chart, as this is not originally my pattern. One day if I get to it, I’ll write it out step-by-step! For now, it isn’t on the horizon, and the chart is all I have to offer. I know that isn’t much help! Sending positive crafterly vibes your way 🙂

      1. Last time i looked, this was a paid pattern. So I was curious, is it now free for this gorgeous pattern?
        i have to try again to recover files from old computer. I’ve had a crash and lost ALL data – including hundreds of patterns, some of which I had to buy.
        SO frustrating!
        I know I had bought this Babouska Rose – I fell in love with it the first time I saw it!

      2. Hi there! Babouska Rose isn’t my pattern – and I’m not sure if the author has had it paid or free. Mine is just a mini tutorial of photos and the granny joining. But check the link for the original pattern author! It may have more info ❤️❤️

  6. I would like the pattern for this rose afghan. I would also like your idea on working this pattern with the roses as a coat. Please respond.

  7. How do you print the free patterns? I have nothing but problems in trying yo print a Grayy Rose Afgan pattern.
