I need to know the stitch to use to sew something together.  I know that one method is to put the right sides of an item together and single crochet or slip stitch them together, but what about if I wanted a smooth edge?  For example, if I made granny squares for a blanket how would I put them together?  I've read somewhere about a whip stitch.  Is that possible with crocheting?

A whip stitch does work for crochet but, personally, I don't like it - my Mom has made afghans sewing it together this way but if the yarn breaks, the whole thing tends to pull apart.

What I do for a flat finish is hold the squares right sides together and then either slip stitch or single crochet in the back loops only.

I usually put rs to rs and then sc together.
I am crocheting cotton gloves and the way they are joined is really cool Cool
Put squares next to each other, sc into stitch on one square, 1 chain, sc into stitch on other square.
1 chain, sc into next stitch on 1st square, 1 chain, sc into next stitch on 2nd square and so on.
A very smart finish Wink

I am not a crocheter... what does sc mean?  I'm trying to find a way to sew together knit squares to make a blanket.  Thanks!

Use a tapestry needle, yarn and hand sew it.
