Bind off all sts leaving last loop on needle.

Edging: Drop loop from needle, insert crochet hook in loop, turn; work 3 sc in each corner and 48 sc evenly spaced across each side; join with slip st to first sc, finish off.

Assembly: Afghan is assembled by joining 5 completed squares into 4 vertical strips and then by joining strips. Lay out squares in desired order. Join squares as follows: With right sides together, insert yarn needle from right to left through front loop of first square and back loop of second square. Bring the needle around and insert it from right to left through the next loop on both squares. Continue in this manner, keeping the sewing yarn fairly loose.

Border: With right side facing, join yarn with slip st in any corner; ch 1, sc evenly around Afghan working 3 sc in each corner; join with slip st to first sc, finish off.
