Joining Granny Squares
When I join my Granny Squares together I always choose to crochet them rather than stitch them. Its just the way that appeals to me, although many of my hooking buddies prefer the stitching method. I guess it's a personal preference. And as many of you have asked me to supply this information, here you have it :: my take on joining the Grannies, in usual Attic24 style with waaaaay too many pictures I suspect. But hey, I want you to get it and not struggle with it, and I think pictures do the job better than words. Ok, firstly put your two squares together, Right Sides together. So your hook goes through the outside loop of the square nearest to you.... ...then through the outside loop of the square farthest away. Start at the right hand corner, you are working right to left. Put hook through OUTSIDE LOOPS of the corner stitches, and hook your yarn through both loops. (Note :: I am using a contrasting red yarn here to join so you can see it easily, but best to use a matching colour.
