Crochet Flower Edging
I have been looking for an edging to add to my Tunisian Roses Afghan. I found a PIN of a Crochet Flower Edging that I thought would be perfect for my afghan. The tutorial is in another language, google translate doesn't help much and the pictures were not in order. This is what I figured out for this stitch and will be using for my afghan.
