Mile-a-Minute Afghan Strips

Using a simple motif pattern, it’s easy to join crochet motifs into strips, which can then be joined to make a complete afghan. This makes a blanket project more portable while it is being worked on, because you only need to transport the portion of the afghan you are working on at any given time. Almost any simple motif pattern will work for with this process. I’m using the Simple Flower in Square Crochet Motif to show you how a simple strip is made in this tutorial.

Step 1:  Crochet enough motifs for your strip.
Step 2:  Join motifs together according to preference.
Step 3: Crochet around strip if desired.
Step 4:  Join multiple strips together, until afghan is desired size.

One last thing before you go...
