Tuesday’s Crochet Tip – How to Join Granny Squares as You Go

Share Button

This week’s tip comes from Sara Delaney and is an excellent way to join granny squares. You’ve got to try it out.

Granny squares can be a great, quick project to use up lots of scraps but the additional work of joining them all together can be a bit daunting. By simply replacing some of the chain stitches along the sides and corners of the squares you are joining together you won’t have to bother with a crocheted or a sewn seam. If you crochet them together as you go then there isn’t any seaming at all!

Watch our new video as Sara walks you through the steps of joining granny squares as you go.

    So clear and precise.  After making a granny square afghan and having to sew it together-which I will never do again now that I’ve seen this video, it looks so much neater and fluid-one square after another attaches without a hitch!  Thank you WEBS!

    This video is so clear and concise-I will never sew another granny square afghan again!  Thank you WEBS!

    Very clever. Now what happens when you are joining in the next row? Do you end up with three slipstitches in the corner chain-three loop, or do you do something different?

    This is beautifully explained. Thank you so much for doing this – I could never really understand this method until I saw your video clip. It’s much easier seeing someone actually doing the movements than trying to read something and do it at the same time!
