Okay, I'm very close to being done with my first afghan.  A few questions for the expert crocheters out there.  My edges are not even--a few stitches off here and there--but I've gone so far I don't want to turn back.  How do I edge the afghan to make it look neat?  And the corners?  My crochet book does not explain it well enough.

very nicely done  Smiley  i did an afghan just like that and mine did the same thing. you can either just leave it, or do a round of sc or dc all the way arround.  i just left mine the way it was.  if you want i can post a pic of my edges to show you how mine came out.

yes, I would love to see a pic of your afghan. I'm just wondering how exactly to sc around when the holes are not even.  Sorry, don't know how to explain that very well Undecided

well here's how my edges look


as for the sc, you just kinda fill in the holes as you go.  but if yours looks like mine then don't even worry about, that's how it's suppose to be.

ya know i thought of something, have you counted that last half wave out to make sure you have the same number of stitches all the way up? that might be the problem. or it could be the way your turning it to start the next row.  maybe you could take a close up of your edge and i could look and see if your turning is off.

I can't seem to get too close without the flash washing it out.  It is my first project, and of course I chose to make an afghan instead of a scarf or something!  The stitches across are 156.  Sometimes it ended up being 155 or 157, so I know I messed up somewhere.  And I should have pulled it out... but I didn't.  I'll try to take another pic and see if I can get closer.
