Basting can hold slippery fabric together while sewing regular stitches. Basting first allows... MORE the basting stitches to be easily removed if the fabric does slip out of place. Basting is used to create temporary stitching such as the process of sewing in a zipper.
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.
