Step 2
 Assembly
  
Step 1 Lay one light grey stripe down on your working surface, straight out to its full length.
 
Step 2 Lay one royal blue strip on top of the grey stripe. Line up one of the edges, lengthwise. Thread and lock the stitch markers through both stripes every 10" or so, to hold them together as you stitch.
 
Step 3 At one end, thread royal yarn through both first stitches and knot. Sc both stripes together across each stitch to the end. Fasten off.
 
TIP: Crocheting the stripes on top of each other, rather than side-by-side, creates a ridge down the line where they are attached.
 
Step 4 Repeat Steps 1-3 for each stripe, alternating stripe colors. Use Mint yarn when attaching light grey to Mint; and use royal blue yarn when attaching light grey to royal blue.
 
TIP: Be careful when laying he stripes on top of each other, to lock the stitch markers so the all of the ridges appear on the same side of the afghan.
 
Step 5 Tuck in all ends.
