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. Flower Hexagon Granny How-To In my search for a Granny Hexagon to make blankets for my girls, I just couldn’t find one that I really LOVED. Then I realized that there were some gorgeous crocheted flowers with six sides, and I could make a hex from one of those. So this pattern was born. I will do my best to teach it to you. ETA: I have had many questions about what yarn I used. It is Lion Brand Cotton Ease, and 3 years later, it is still holding up very nicely!

But I wanted to play around with the idea and maybe take it a new direction – and the Wiggle It Crochet Trivet and Dishcloth Set is the result!

Block Stitch Afghan .....what about two more pictures of my blanket to be????
