Want to crochet a unique afghan created from interesting afghan squares? This diagonal striped afghan square is a design you might like to try. The square pictured here was crocheted using Simply Soft yarn; it is worked in single crochet stitch using the tapestry crochet technique.

How to Join the Afghan Squares

After you've crocheted enough squares to create your afghan, you'll want to connect the squares. My favorite method: whip stitch. There are other ways to joining crocheted squares together as well.

More Ideas

Your crocheted squares could also be used to make cushions or other projects if you prefer. If you use baby yarns, you could create a baby blanket. I used one square made of cotton to create a diagonal striped potholder. There are many different possibilities.
