I LOVE this method Fantasticmio, i've used it on a few things, including a cream yo-yo baby blanket i made and it just makes so much sense, i'd have used this method to join my 200 blocks CAL blanket too if i'd been a bit more with it when i was making my extra squares, as it was i ended up sc-ing the squares together, which has given it a nice patchwork look

For those of you who have used this tutorial already: I've made a note part way through of something that I think works a bit better.  Basically, on any join that is *not* a corner, I found doing a ch1 there looked nicer than doing nothing.  Both ways work, though!

I did see that FMio, thankyou, i've tried both ways and found that the results vary depending on the yarn i'm using, so mostly i go with whatever works for the item i'm working on
(this one is without the addition of chains)
(not the greatest pic but unfortunately i can't get a better one as the blanket was given and i've not seen it since, rarely see the recipient so i'm not too bothered, but i do hope it's been well loved)
