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.

How to cross double crochet stitch:
Next, you want to learn how to cross double crochet stitch. You will need
to start with two multiples, which creates a base of two. Start with
three chain stitches; skip one stitch and double crochet in the following
stitch. Skip another stitch and repeat across, and to the finish with
another double crochet in the final stitch.

Use a 7-multiple to crossbatch, plus four to add three bases to your
Afghan. In row, one skip two chain stitches and double crochet two in the
following chain, skipping another three chain stitches and single crochet
into the following four chain stitches, skip three chains, and single
crochet the final chain stitch, and then turn.

The lines joining angles-spike stitching, is known to crochet experts as
“Diagonal Spike Stitch.” The experts will use four, plus two multiples to
create dual bases. To begin the steps the expert will start in the first
row, skipping three chain stitches followed by double crochet in all of
the three chain stitches, skipping the following chain, and Yarn over Yo
stitch followed by inserting the hook in the matching chain stitch as
that of the first, preceding double crochet. Moving along the expert
double crochets three groups and Yarn over Yo to pull up the loops. The
loops are loose at this time and finished with a stitch, i.e. a double
crochet spike stitch and repeats the steps across, and to the finish with
a double crochet in the final chain made and then turns.

Continuing the diagonal spike-stitch in the second row by chaining three,
stitches for the beginning double crochet and continue to the next step.
Skip one stitch, double crochet again in all of your following three
stitches, skip another stitch, spike stitch in the following stitch, and
repeat the steps across, at the finish, and with a double crochet in your
crown turning chain, and then turn, repeat the steps outlined in row two
to complete your pattern.

You are almost finished, yet you will need to learn how to knot stitch,
popcorn stitch, shell and puff stitch, and so forth.
