Intro: I'm new to the Craftster forums, and a new crocheter. I know how to knit, but I don't enjoy it as much as crocheting.
I'm doing the color-bar blanket, but am modifying the colors to make it a black and white striped blanket. When I get done with it in about ten years, I'll post the pictures.
I tried joining a few of the squares together, but I have no idea how to do it neatly. The description in the book on how to join the pieces confused me, so I don't know what to do. For the people who have completed the blanket, did you join them "properly" or just wing it? Does it affect the overall neatness of the piece if you *don't*?
