Ok, I'm having some trouble.  I am kinda new to crochet and am having problems with how to join a new color. The way I'm doing it must be wrong cause' my squares look wonky.  Can anyone help me?   Thanks,   Elizabeth

I think Kim's blog on the anatomy of the square will help you.  Are you wondering when to change color or how to go about actually tying off one and adding another?

Thanks for the link and the help.

I'm rolling on my squares now. I would like to be able to seam my sections as I go but I don't know how to weave the ends in . Is there a correct way to do this?

Thanks, Elizabeth

for weaving in the ends, I just put a needle on and, on the reverse side of the project, slide it through some stitches. since an image is much better than pictures... you can check these two youtube videos:

I myself have started my own blanket. I decided to do it in the colors of the rainbow, since I had some Caron Simply Soft Brites! laying around and... well, I think I'll have to look at it with sunglasses when it's finished  Tongue

who else is currently working on a blanket? how are you progressing? I just finished joining the 4th section and I am so proud  Grin



but I don't know why my squares don't look right where I join the colors, you can see in the pictures that the end of one row comes higher than the beginning  Sad not that I care a lot, but it's a bit frustrating that I have this little problem with my squares, when I have never had it when joining colors in 12-point and 5-point stars  Huh

Did you leave out a set of chains in one of the first rounds? To bring it up to the level of the next round? That's the only thing I can think of that would cause that problem. And then, once you missed it in the early round, the difference gets carried through on each round following. But it seems strange that you would miss it on every square!

thanks for the help, craftADDchick, but I don't think I understand what that means... *looks at instructions* the only set of chains are the ch3 at the beginning of each round, then the ch2 on the corners. where should there be a set of chains left out?

maybe that's what I've missed  Embarrassed

That chain 3 at the beginning of each round is what I was thinking of. If you left it out, you'd have a dip in your round because you didn't bring it up to the proper height with the chains.

But it isn't something you're likely to leave out...you're not a beginner. So I'm as stumped as you are!

Do you have a close-up shot of one of the squares?

yep, the ch3 are there. I even thought it was the ch3 the problem, that I somehow did the chains too big and they lifted everything up, but tried using a ch2 instead and the same problem was there

I have a closeup, please excuse the bad light  Embarrassed



now I am thinking I may be doing something back when waving in the changes of colors, because I do it as I go, but I can't think what it may be.

oh! and I'm not a beginner, but neither an expert! nobody I know here crochets, so I learn from errors and from the internet...  Tongue
