Joining Granny Squares Together

There are lots of methods out there to join your crocheted squares together to make one big piece. 

We are going to simply stitch them together with the right sides facing each other.

  1. Put the squares right sides together and thread your yarn needle. 
  1. Loop the yarn through to secure it with a knot. 
  1. Put your needle through the two middle loops of each stitch and work across until they are attached.

Wow! Did you think you’d be making a whole blanket by the end of this crochet-along? 

Instead of referring back to the 7 emails we have sent over the past week, we thought it would be best to release the full pattern as a PDF for you to print and refer to again and again.
