I am trying to make a plain afghan and I have no clue what I'm doing. I'm also worried that when I have to add more yarn will be the weak point that will unravel it all. I've had that issue with everything I've crocheted. It comes undone!!! What do I do? are there any good sites?

  • Don't know about sights. When you join two threads I always note the thread I am ending with, then start the the next like I started the very beginning of the blanket. I would recommend going to a craft store and see if there are classes. Or check the library and see if there is a group that meets, or go to a retirement home, I learned from my mom and grandma. It always helps for someone to see what you are doing. And you would pick up some great pointers. Enjoy hope that helped.

    joining threads is easy, i'm not going to bother explaining, but you should look it up.
