Construction Note for your own easy crochet Afghan project
- The pattern is worked in 2 different sections, first is the Filet and second is chains, which is then thread through the mesh (Filet) made.
- Section 2: Weaving in your chains after Row 2 of section one, you can skip to section 2 and Weave your chains through first
rows of filet made and continue this way.
You can also decide to make few rows of filets and weave in the chains instead of weaving after every rows.
Or You can decide to complete the first section and then weave your chains through. This last option might become very tasking and stressful.

Here are some helpful tips for weaving your crochet Afghan
- Make sure not to skip more than 1 dc.
- The finished look has straight lines of dc.
- This prototype was made with long chains weaved through the row as such, there are only few ends to sew in.
- You could also weave each row separately with ends left on either side, this can be used as fringes or sewn in, this method
would leave you with lots of ends to deal with.
- Make sure not to have a very tight pull after each row of threading to avoid shrinkage.
- Keep similar tension while Weaving to have a uniform shape of blanket, you might find placing stitch markers at the end of each row.
