Maybe you could try seaming through the back loops only, see how it looks.

Try the links from Horse Power. 
43  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: working in the round? on: June 26, 2007 05:39:41 PM
there are MANY books out there that have great pics and instructions.  Now don't laugh, but the BEST books i have found for different stitches and easy patterns to follow have been by Vanna White!  Yes, the chick from Wheel of Fortune!  All of her patterns have always been very easy to follow and well written.  But everyone is different and learns differently.  maybe this will help with the abbreviations:

sc= single crochet
hdc= half double crochet
st or sts= stitch or stitches
dc= double crochet
sl st= slip stitch

But even with the help of tutorials (on how to knit in the round),
I can't get past the chain 3 instruction >_<

Once you chain 3 times, you insert your hook back into the first chain and slip stitch (put you hook into the chain, yarn over and pull through, this joins without adding any height).  Once this "ring" or "circle" is formed you will dc (double crochet) into the "ring" or "circle", not onto the chains. 

When the start of a new row or round begins with a chain 3 , that is normally counted as a stitch.  So lets say the pattern says "join with sl st, ch 3 and hdc in each st around making 12 sts (stitches).  That would mean that you just did 11 hdc + the ch3 for a total of 12 sts.

GOSH!  I just read this and I really hope this helps you out!  Sometimes showing someone is SOOOO much easier than writing it.  Smiley Keep hookin!

I agree with Whip stitch in the back post.  It will not leave that yuck bump on one side that sc will.  Great job BTW.  Although pink is not my fav color, it is very very pretty!!!!

Thanks ya'll for the comlimentss.  I have a few more things that i am almost done with.  i will post pics when i am done in Completed Projects. 

Yeah i used almost all Simply Soft.  I got reall lucky with this project purchase.  If I ever decide to do this again, (if I do I may need to see a real good shrink! hehehe)  I would try to use up scrap yarn. 

I wanted to use the pricier yard but after watching my 2 year old spill juice all over other afgans and blankets , I decided, washable is BEST, at least for the next 10 years or so!

thanks again!!

I hope this works, I havent posted a pic before, so here goes!

I still have some work to do but thought I would share my progress so far.  I have to put this project aside every so often.  I like to come back here to be re-inspired!  Putting these squares together is less than desirable!  

I got REAL lucky on yarn.  My mom was working at Hobby Lobby for a while and would let me know when they were having BIG sales.  I got all the yarn and then some for, now you may want to sit for this ...  $21.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't wait to finish!  I will post a completed pic soon, I hope!

 i admire your patience!  I started this blanket last year and still have a bag full of finished sqaures.  I tried putting them all together and became very frustrated very fast!  Did you wips-stitch or single crochet all the squares together? And which color yarn did you use to piece them together?  I have pleanty of the taupe color left.   I see from your blog that you pieced them together as you went, which is what I should have done.  I cant go back now.   Thanks for  any help you can give me.
