I am making a little blanket for a little girl, and I'm wondering which way to join the squares together. I have never completed a blanket comprised of squares. (I either get bored, and don't finish the squares or I lose some, or I forget what size hook....) I want this to look really nice, but I'm not sure which way to join. (Pay no attention to the end threads I still have to weave in.) I am planning on putting a border around regardless of which way I join.


This is the first way which I'm pretty sure is the normal way of joining.


This is the other way I'm considering joining it. I got this idea from the fabulous afghan posted here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=89587.0 by Dansk.


Please weigh in. Thanks

I'm not sure about the "norm" persay, but I like your second picture with the little pink outline. Smiley

I like the single crochet joins. It gives some definition to the squares.

Or you could add a pink round to the outside of all the granny squares and then sew them together "traditionally". That's how my mom usually does it.

But I like the single crochet join because it gives another touch of pink without overpowering the pink flowers in your squares.

I vote for the pink ridge.  It looks very polished and nice.  Lovely square bythe way!

Thanks for all the suggestions and compliments. I think I will go with the pink. I just wasn't sure, and it's nice to get another opinion. And the people on craftster haven't steered my wrong yet! Thanks again!

Even though you just decided, I also vote for the pink ridge.  I guess that's because it is very similar to the way I am joining my fish afghan, and I picked it because I thought it was nice, so I guess I like it LOLOL!!

I also wanted to compliment you on the blanket...it is lover-ly.  Could you tell us where you got the pattern for that square?

Thanks,

I made it up. I saw a square with a flower in it, but I didn't like the type of flower it was, so I came up with something I did like. Smiley

I think if it turns out well, I may submit it somewhere.

This is lovely. I'm not much of a crochet person (I'm more of a knitter), but a coworker's wife recently had a baby girl and I'm thinking of making a blanket. This gives me hope that maybe I could do one with squares. They seem less... daunting, on the whole. And it's a small victory when you finish one.

Instead of the 7' wide (yes. WIDE. It's going to take me AGES to finish) blanket in double-crochet I've been doing.

Squares are nice because you can take them anywhere with you and do a little at a time. I made all of these squares while watching my sons in dance class.

I have another one started that I work on when they are at baseball practices.

7' wide is extremely daunting. Good luck with both!
