So I found a granny square that I thought was cute and have decided to make some of....then I found someone had made a pillow out of them. The part that I really liked were these lines that they had added to it..they kind of outline every square.
 The more I look at the picture, the more it doesn't look like they were used for joining the pieces together but I could be wrong.
 I'm wondering if anyone has a link to or can explain how this is done. I'll post a picture of what I'm asking about...

 It's that pink line between all of the squares.....

 Thanks in advance!

That looks like the single crochet join to me!

You make it by holding two squares back to back (right sides facing out), then work single crochets into loops on each of them (I usually do one loop on each square, so I'm working through 2 loops).

I often join squares like that...just using single crochet into both pieces like Mio says...it makes a nice ridge border and no sewing! Cheesy

This is how, only put the wrong sides together and do the stitches to show on the right side!
