Have you ever feel the excitement of starting a project and then half-way done you've lost your interest to finish it?! Well, I do with this afghan. I started this last February 2013! The first time I set aside this is when I ran out of yarns. But when I got the materials again for this afghan I just have too many WIP projects and set aside this again until I just totally forgot about this and used the yarns for other projects! LOL!
Last week while cleaning my craft room, I found this again and decide to finish it to lessen my WIP projects. But I didn't make it as big as I want like my first plan, instead I just finish it right away by adding edging to it.
I used Red Heart Super Saver in colors Heather Grey & Bright Yellow and crochet hook size H (5.00 mm). Each squares measures 6 inches. This is already measures 30 x 40 inches, perfect for lapghan.
Here's a close up look at the back. I did JAYG ( Join As You Go) method to stitch the squares together. Take a look at this video (HERE), the technique I did with this afghan is almost the same but instead of slip stitching into both loops, I just slip stitch at the back loops to give a flat result.
And for the this cool two-color edging, I did the (interlocking crochet) criss-cross edging. You can find the video tutorial HERE. Check out this woman's YouTube channel too for more challenging and cool interlocking crochet video tutorials that you will surely like!
