What advice would you give someone starting this project? Crochet loose ends in your work as you go. It's a tedious chore to leave until the end!

I have all of my squares finished and want to single crochet them together as in your afghan. I'm not sure how I should start though. Did you crochet two together and keep adding another two until the desired length. Then crochet all of the long strips together? Love this way of finishing.

Hi there! I first laid them out and determined the length of the row. Then I began by crocheting two squares together and continued adding a square until the desired length. Then I repeated with another row and crocheted the rows together one at a time. Here is a video that shows how to create the raised-seam look that I used: http://www.mooglyblog.com/slip-stitch-single-crochet-seaming/

I also created the entire blanket's edging by varying the crochet stitches each time around. I started with two single crochet rows then improvised from there. I liked the look of the half-double crochet stitch and I finished off with a single crochet to strengthen the edge. I'd recommend making up a swatch and try a couple of different stitches until you find the look you like!
