How To Craft An Afghan
How to Craft an Afghan
You will need a 40 inch by 60-inch material to finish your Afghan. Once
you have the finish you can start building your materials.
How to choose materials:
It’s up to you what type of Afghan you want to create, however in this
article I will show you a few steps in my the “Ivy League.” You want to
select deep, vivid colors. Ultimately, you can select soft fabrics. You
will need wool, preferably the heavy-duty. Purchase 45 ounces of aqua,
red, etc, in a variety of colors. Choose 22 ounces of red, light green;
dark greens, forest green, etc, and blue. Choose 28 ounces of red and
navy blue in a variety of colors. You will need to purchase a hook,
preferably the “K” crocheting hook. The gauge is around 6 ½ squares,
which you can purchase a hook that matches this gauge also.
How to square:
Use a variety of colored yarns in succession per square. If you want to
shift colors, it is best to avoid chain stitching at the end of your
lines. Start turning your work until you connect with the colors, chain
stitch I row and work your line in accordance.
To chain stitch, start with placing one slip knot over your crochet
hook. Your hands should be prepared to work, which includes the thumb
and middle left finger. Hold the yarn at the end and then wrap up and
again over your crochet hook. You should be crocheting at the front of
the back and to the front. Learn more about “Yarn over Yo.”
When you start you, Afghan you will need to square, row, row, border,
assembly, border, etc. When you start squares, create 54 squares on a
chain two stitch. Move to row. To row one work, you will need three
single crochets in your second chain stitch and away from your hook on
another single chain turn.
Move to your second row. Work two single crochets in your first single
crochet and move to the following single crochet and the second, single
crochet in the last single. Continue with five stitches and chain
another single turn.
In your third row work two single crochets in your first single,
continue singles within the following three singles, adding two more
singles to your last single, and then chain another turn.
Moving to the fourth row, work two singles in your first single and
then single crochet an even row to the last single. Work another two
singles to the last and chain one turn.
Next row, repeat by adding four rows and after you reach rows eleven up
to twenty-three begin your stitches across the material.
Continuing, create a loop in all of your first two singles. Use the
“Yarn over Yo” method and move through all three of your loops on the
crochet hook, which brings you to one single crochet and the decreasing
phase. Next, single crochet two even stitches to decrease your last two
singles and churn one turn. Repeat the steps on the twelve rows, yet
only stitch three single crochet remains.
On your last row create a loop in each of your preceding three singles
and start the “Yarn over Yo” method to continue through each loops on
your crochet hook and then close.
Now you will start border rounds. Gather your greens, blue, and reds
with a slipstitch in your corners. Do another three singles in the
corner and another single to the following corner making sure the
singles are even. Repeat the steps from about, and slip stitch toward
the first single crochet.
On your second and third rounds, slip stitch toward the middle stitch
of your corner, and repeat the round once, and close after your finish
the third round.
Now you are ready to assemble. You should have a six square Afghan
created, which is wide and has another 9 squares lengthwise. You want
to oversew stitch (Whipstitch) the square togs and run ALL crosswise
stripes so that they move in the same course. Now, border another
round. Gather your yarn with another slipknot at the corner, and single
crochet three in the corner, single crocheting another in the following
corner, while making sure it is even. Repeat, stitching around and slip
knot to reach the first single. Round two includes the slipknot to the
middle single crochet of your corner, repeat round one, and close.
