No. It's usually easiest to stitch it on with sewing thread, which is easy to hide in the yarn, but you can also sometimes use crochet.


For basic crochet the tools you will need are yarn or crochet thread, and a crochet hook of the appropriate size (it should say on the yarn which size hook to use). These are all the tools that you NEED, but a yarn needle would also be useful, and there are many other peripherals that you could make use of, such as a stitch counter, stitch holders, instruction books, flower maker, etc.

The only way I know to crochet letters onto an already completed afghan would be to use surface stitching. Another method, which is not crochet but which would give a very nice look, would be to cross-stitch them on. This can be done on single crochet or tunisian crochet (afghan stitch). Another way to get letters on an afghan would be to crochet strands of chains or single crochet strips and shape them into the letters needed, then attach them to the ghan. That would give a 3-D effect.


In general, thread refers to a very thin string used for sewing, while yarn is a thicker, sometimes softer, string used for knitting, crocheting, etc. There are different weight threads, usually made from cotton, with sometimes a shiny viscose added for holiday use. Weights vary from 3 to 30 with 3 being the thickest to 30 being the thinnest. There is also tatting cotton which is the thinnest of all, if you really want to drive yourself nuts and try to crochet with it. Thread was used a lot in the doilies and filet crochet of yesteryear. Doilies are still made, but the cotton thread is also used in scarves and bookmarks these days. I have made teddies with thread also, same pattern as worsted weight but with thread and a much tinier hook. I have seen patterns for nativities and for chapstick holders also.
