I am making squares each day from this really cool calendar that I will attach to make an afghan but I would like suggestions on which method to use to stitch the squares together?

They are all made with different weights of yarn but they are all 6" square. 

Any thoughts and suggestions would be wonderful.

Thank you

There are various ways, depending on how you want it to look. Crocheting them together gives a kind of neat look, but sewing like a cross-stitch is neat too, making it look more like an old-fashioned quilt. Or, if you want the seams to be invisible, then the mattress stitch. I would suggest doing them in long strips then joining the strips, no matter which style of joining you choose.

I have been looking for this type of calender I knew there had to be one out there.  What is the title of yours please.   Grin
