Lion Brand Tree of Life Afghan

Took a while to complete, but worth it. Did not care for the flower garden section. Used a 13 stitch leaf pattern I found in one of my old reference books. A provisional cast on for the bud border will make for a smoother finish seam. Instructions are sometimes confusing.

Hi. I made this afghan this past year, but with the flowers. I would love the leaf pattern. Your afghan is beautiful. Darlene Lonseth
cathbeasle answered:
It is a graph. Don't have a problem giving it to you. Just don't know how to get it you.
vickstan89947647 asked:
I totally love your version with the leaf pattern SO much better than the original, your afghan is gorgeous. It looks as if the leaves might be two-toned, did you use different colors to make the shading or is that just an optical illusion?
cathbeasle answered:
Thank you so much! All the same yarn. Lion Brand Fishermans wool.
