I wish to edge some crochet made from two pieces forming a "tee".  I am wondering how best to tackle the corners where the pieces meet.

I can do the corners where you crochet 3 in the corner stitch, its the others I am asking for help about.

On the inside corners, I suggest you do sc2tog, putting on sc in one side, and the other sc in the adjoining side.

Do you mean to sc along until the corner stitch then sc2tog then continue to sc?

Yes.  Treat all of the edges the way you normally would. 

I do 3sc on outside corners of squares, and would do sc2tog on any inside corners.  If that makes a hole (that you are unhappy with), you could try doing sc3tog, and put the middle one right in the corner, somehow.

I would suggest drawing up a loop in the last stitch of the inside corner, draw up a loop in the corner and draw up a loop on 1st stitch of the next inside corner.  This would be similar to what is done on a ripple afghan.  Check out some of the ripples and get an idea of what I'm trying to explain.

That describes a sc2tog, actually. Smiley
