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.

Find me on Ravelry!

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