Hi everyone,

I finally finished crocheting an afghan in double crochet. The instructions just say to "sew all the sides together". Since you see both sides of the afghan, I was going to use a tapestry needle, but I don't know how to sew it together. I want a flat, invisible seam. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

What kind of edges do you have? I usually crochet mine together, but they are mostly squares. I have been making a small rug in strips and just whip stitching the pieces together in a complementary color. I also think that Mattress Stitch is good, it leaves a pretty invisible joining.I think there are video tutorials for it online. Let me know how you are doing with this, Warmly, Chayah

The afghan is made in strips of 10 blocks long. I used the Mattress stitch and it turned out great! The rug you are making sounds like it is very pretty.

Thanks!

Congratulations to you! My rug is waiting patiently for me to get back to it. Have a very happy New Year, Warmly, C.
