Solid Crochet Square Baby Afghan

Image
This afghan is approximately 24" across. You can continue with the basic pattern to make it larger. I found that it was necessary to switch to a smaller crochet hook on round 14, otherwise it was getting to full on the edges. The video will get you started for the first 5 rounds. I would recommend a simple reverse or backward single crochet edging.

Purpose for Chainat the beginning of round - Many times I will use a chain at the beginning of the round. It will not count as a stitch.  I use it as a step up so I can work the full crochet stitch in place of the traditional chain.  I feel this technique has a neater appearance than working a chain.  You may use a chain 2 or 3 if you prefer using traditional crochet technique…

Leaning Crochet Stitches and Squares - Crochet Tip #60

Image
Have you noticed that the stitches in some squares may lean more than others? In this example, the stitches have a slight lean but it is not real noticeable. This is because the rounds of the square are worked in the same direction. Think about when you crochet a row of stitches when working a blanket. At each end you turn. The stitches will have a different look with crochet rows. To solve the stitch lean, you will turn on each round. This will produce more uniform stitches, that should stand taller and reduce the stitch lean.
