Method 6 Assembling the afghan

Method 6
 
Assembling afghan

Working with the right side of the squares up on a table,  place the two squares together. With a crochet hook, make a band around the square.

Join the motifs together crocheting one row in a fancy stitch on one side of each motif, making sure to leave sufficient space between the motifs.


Keep adding squares and whipstitching them together, until you have added all your squares.

You can also use this method to join thread crochet, such as tablecloths, bedspeards, etc.

Assembling  Afghan by crocheting it together

Working with the right side of the squares up on a table,
place the two squares together. With a crochet hook, take up
a loop from BOTH top and bottom loops of each square, and crochet
them together. Repeat across square, add two more squares,
crocheting these together, till you have the afghan, the
number of squares that you want it wide.

Go back and crochet the sides of each square together.
You now have completed two rows of your afghan.

Keep adding squares and crocheting them together, until
you have added all your squares.

Method  5

Assembling  the Afghan by crocheting it together

Working with the right side of the squares up on a table, place the two squares together. With a crochet hook, take up   a loop from the bottom loop only of each square, and crochet  them together. Repeat across square, add another square, crocheting these together, until you have the width of the afghan you want.  Repeat for sides and rest of the squares.

Keep adding squares and crocheting them together, until you have added all your squares.  This is my favorite way to put an afghan together, I like the "edge" you get by not using the top loops of each square, see the picture.
