Imagine walking through an exquisite garden, surrounded by opulent and delicately fragrant blooms. Imagine closing your eyes and breathing in the aura that surrounds you. Would it be peace and calm? Or exciting and invigorating?

This design is like walking through a secret garden, sprinkled with unexpected delights in the simplicity and wonder of familiar stitches coming together in a new and intriguing way. I hope you enjoy taking this journey one color and one row at a time!

The pattern itself includes a color coded symbol chart plus detailed instructions for all special stitches, including post stitches, modified puff stitches, and working into the 3rd loop of hdc stitches, as well as optional foundation and chainless stitches. There is also a link to an informal video tutorial that walks you through each row of the pattern!
