I wanted to make a checkered blanket but I don't have a lot of knitting know-how so I decided to knit long scarf like pieces and somehow attach them together to make a square blanket.
The problem is I'm not sure exactly how to attach them, do I just take a yarn needle and some yarn and sew? Or is there a better way?

Yup!  That's probably the easiest way to do it.  Its called the whipstitch.  Knitty has a tutorial on it, and I'm sure if you googled something like "sewing knit pieces together," you'd come up with a thousand tutorials on how to do it.

Mattress stitch will look better though, check out some tutes in IK, on KNitty, Knittinghelp.com, and probably many other websites.
