The close knit loops and the delicate appearance of it is what make it appealing and stylish. Afghan Crochet is similar to the traditional way of Crocheting. But it differs in the sense that this style of Crocheting requires knots or knitting to be done very closely. This makes the patterns on clothes look more delicate.
Afghan Crochet is also called or is known as the Tunisian Crochet. This requires simple chains of Crocheting to be followed by a series of slip stitching. This is a complicated way of knitting.

Afghan roses, throw backs etc are all very different than the ones made by the traditional technique. Afghan patterns look delicate and beautiful. Being able to do this type of Crochet requires a lot of practice and training. The simple art of making fabric this way in no ordinary task, but when you can devote time it is easily done.
