There are loads of methods of joining (granny) squares, my method is just one, and may not even be the best. If you have particular layout for your blanket in mind, lay out your squares in that pattern. Then stack your squares so you can keep track of what goes where. Because of how this method works, it is best to have as few squares in each stack as possible. Take the top square and put it on the left and then the next square and keep that on the right. Lay the rows together with backs facing each other.
