Do any of my readers CROCHET??????

Hi.  Do any of you out there crochet?  I have a dilema.  I have four colors that I am crocheting into 8" squares for an afghan.  Each color is a different stitch.

Red squares = 8 needed
Purple squares = 7 "
Rust squares = 7 "
Green squares = 8 "

I finished the red, purple and rust squares.  I started working on my green ones.


I have been stretching them to fit but I fear that when I sew all the blocks together; I will encounter problems if I make it bigger.

I have never sewn crochet to crochet or to nything else before.

I don't want to start over so here I am asking for your help.

The only other thing I can think to do is change the stitch.

Oh, the stitches are as follows:

Red - half double crochet
Purple - single crochet and then double crochet to form little bubbles
Rust - double crochet
The Green Monster - single crochet

I think my tension is too tight or sumpin.


Oh man, I know this is not the best picture but now you can see them all!

Any help would be really apreciated!

Thanks for stopping by...

Alia is the wool all from the same brand, lot etc??

You could try going up a hook size?

Hey, thanks Isra. Yes it is. I took the one block apart and redid it with a looser tension and it is working out now! Thanks so much!
