From book’s pattern description -

Being a child of the seventies it was inevitable that I would be aware of the influence of Flower Power.  Throughout history painters and designers have used a floral motif in numerous ways.  I chose to use it for its connotations of color, serenity and well-being…While the flower is a basic repeating shape, variation is introduced through the texture, beads and embroidery.  A significant feature of this afghan is the interspersing of vibrant stripes that are mixed with the floral motifs to create a checkerboard effect.
