(((((( I have. I thought they came out fine. I used a 'not to tight or not too lose' slip stitch with a hook size suggest off the yarn label.

No threading that needle a lot, right? Great idea!!

What you might do is try it and if you don't like the look, we know how easy crochets stitches frog! Love it!!

I was wondering if anyone has attached knit afghan panels with crochet slip stitch, vs. sewing? If so, did it turn out ok? Thanks, Ingrid

Personally I wouldn't do it. Even if you get the tension exactly right, you still end up with a very "raised" seam, almost a welt. The more time consuming "weaved" seam will look much more professional.
Thank you so much, I appreciate your advice. :thumbup:

I recently completed a crocheted afghan that had 13 strips I had to put together. The pattern called for the crochet slip stitch, so that's what I used and it turned out well. Just be sure not to make the slip stitch too tightly...it looks great!

I appreciate your advice. I think it's worth a try, I don't much like sewing...
