Directions:This easy stitch is perfect for an afghan or blanket. It is just sets of 3 stitches, one single crochet and two doubles. Once you get into the hang of it, you can do it in your sleep! Use it for a baby blanket in a pretty pink or blue or for a regular afghan with bright colors! You can change colors after a few rows for a multicolored effect.
closed blanket stitch - Thrust needle through cloth in a slanting position & bring needle through the extreme edge of work. The second stitch is slanted in the opposite direction & meets the first stitch, thus forming pairs of stitches that are closed at top to form a pattern of points.
