Putting it all together

Below is an illustration of how I put my squares together.

However you can change this order to suit yourself. As I

have said before nothing on theses pages is written

in stone. For instance, if you really like one square you

could make the whole afghan in just one square or any

combination you prefer.

 

I crocheted mine together but you can sew them

together if you want. The crochet makes a ridge I like

when worked on the front side of the afghan. It will give

a smooth appearance to the backside. If you prefer the smooth side on the front just work the crochet from the back.

I used a size I (as in Ida) crochet hook.

 

Study your square, you will notice that along the sides it appears as a

little knot and a loop, a knot and a loop all along the side. I crocheted

through the loops placing my needle under both strands of the loop for

more strength.     

         With wrong sides together, run your crochet hook through the

first set of stitches on your square. Bring through a loop. Then crochet

1 stitch in the loop, Wrap your yarn around the needle 1 time and go

into the next loop of your square. Bring the yarn through you will now

have 3 strands of yarn on your needle. Crochet off 2 you will have 2

strands left, crochet off theses 2 strands, continue in this manner to end

of square and bind off by cutting the yarn and bringing it through the last

loop on your needle.

This ends the afghan square series. If you have enjoyed this series and would

I like to see more projects like this take a moment to drop me a line

 

If you would like to contribute an original pattern or design we would love to hear from you..

Happy knitting from Grandma on the Mountain
