How to complete your Afghan in the Evening News
To complete your Afghan you will need to learn steps, such as chain loop stitching, clusters, cross double stitching, cross-batch, and the lines joining angles spike stitching. Of course you will need to learn more about Fantail stitching, knot stitching, popcorn, puff, shell, V stitching, zigzag lozenge stitching, sample square, bordering, assembling, and more to complete your Afghan.
To get your started we can consider chain loop stitching. To chain loop stitch avoid starting your square with the loop stitch. Instead, in row one chain stitch six lines, skip one stitch, and single crochet in the following stitch, throughout, i.e. across, and then turn. In row two chain stitch four rows, double crochet in your following chain, and continue across, finishing with a turn and proceeding to the next row. Now, chain stitch and add a single crochet in your six chain loops and move to chain one throughout until the finish and complete with a double crochet in the initial, i.e. the first chain of your preceding row.
Now you are ready to move onto collecting, or clusters. In the cluster steps, you start with your preceding loop, keeping it on each stitch on your crochet hook. Finish by working one stitch in the following stitches to a favorable level and “Yarn over Yo” throughout the loops on your crochet hook, finishing your stitch with a chain stitch.
