How to Make a Crochet Blanket of Roses Afghan Using Invisible Crochet
Step 1: Create the Individual Squares
To start, you’ll need to create the individual squares that will make up your Crochet Blanket of Roses Afghan. You can choose any square pattern that you like, but it’s essential to ensure that each square has an even number of stitches on each side for easy joining later.
Step 2: Join the Squares
Using the invisible crochet technique, join the squares together to create the blanket. To do this, place two squares with the right sides facing each other and use the fine thread to join them together with single crochet stitches. Continue joining the squares together until you have the desired size for your blanket.
Step 3: Add the Border
Once you’ve joined all the squares, it’s time to add the border to your Crochet Blanket of Roses Afghan. To do this, use the worsted weight yarn and a crochet hook to create a border that complements the squares. You can use any border pattern that you like, but make sure that it is proportional to the size of the squares.
