I'm whipping up some granny squares for an afghan and want to add a solid border row of dc around the square.  In the ch 3 space that is each "corner" of the square, should I put in 3 or 4 dc?  After the dc border row, I'll be joining the squares.  Thanks.

I think its 3 but you could try it and see how it looks and if its too tight frog part of it and do 4.  I know thats a pain but you would get your answer.

I would do 4 or maybe even 5 dc in the corner.  3 would most likely make it curl.

I usually dc2, ch1, then dc2 more. If it still curls, frog and change the ch1 to ch2.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

ah yes, that would work as well.  doing that gives you a nice pointy corner.

Hi there.  I like to do (dc, ch2, dc) in the corner.  That allows a large enough gap in each corner to find it each time during joining.  Joining for me is the hardest and doing it this way has made it so much easier.  I am also doing fleece granny squares and these are so easy because the stitches are always in the same place.  I hope that this helps.  Let us see when you are done.
