Learn to Crochet: Whipstitch Inside Loops (Left Handed Video Tutorial)

 Let's talk about seaming, okay?  It's important!  It's simple!  If I didn't do it, I would just have a pile of squares instead of a halfway-done project from Baby Afghans!  It can even be done by left-handed people, but you can probably still get the idea by watching this video even if you're right-dominant.
  

I typically seam my work together by facing the right sides together.  I'm not really sure why, other than I might be thinking about sewing with fabric.  But! There's no raw edge with crochet, so why do something that makes your squares (or strips or hexagons or whatever else you want to join together) bend and warp?

Stitching inside the loops even seems to make a tiny bit of difference in how large my squares appear.  Or so I think.  It's all very, very gray.  I had originally planned to alternate gray squares with yellow ones, but then I changed my mind.  So now I need to make 13 more gray squares with yellow centers.

 

As for those yellow squares with gray centers I already crocheted?

Well, I'm just going to crochet 12 more of those at a later date.  For now, I'm focused on the gray blanket because that's the one I plan to give as a gift at a baby shower I'm attending.  On Friday.

I might have finished a little sooner if I hadn't been distracted by other cute square projects, but oh well.  This is my second time making the pattern, and it's a pretty quick project even if you're not familiar with it.  I'm still going to make an extra strip so that the blanket will be a square, and I'm going to continue to be pleased with stitching the inside loops.  I'm halfway there!
