Crochet Join and Border for 7 Day Sampler Afghan

 

7 Day Sampler Afghan Join

7 Day Sampler Afghan Join

Join and Border time! Today we will join the squares and add the border to our 7 Day Sampler Afghan Stitch Along.

I choose the Zig Zag Horizontal and Vertical joining method for this motif because it’s fast and no sewing required!  The border is 3 rounds, using one of the textures from the squares.  If you prefer using a different stitch on the border, go for it!

When you upload your project to The Crochet Crowd Stitch Social Group or Instagram, feel free to tag me so I can see what you have crocheted.  Follow me on Instagram @ jeannestein or on Facebook.  My designs can also be saved in your Ravelry favorites by following me HERE.

I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.
