Thank you for showing me how to join together the squares. It has been a long time since I have done this. I needed to give my brain a jog.


Thanks for showing me a better way to join my squares. But I have one question: looking at the 4 squares, where the for corners meet can you there seems to be a gap can this be rectified? Lol....I hope you can understand my question. Thanks Robyn.

Hi Lucy

I adore your crochet.




I am happy to meet you Mrs Lusy, thank you for all. Dimitra Makropoulou from Xilokastro, Greece.


How do you put the ends into the squares. That would be awesome!!


Hello Lucy,

I'm searching for help to join my squares!
I have squares with 3ch at the corners. i don't understand how i'm supposed to join the corners, the ch of the middle is questionning me....do i have to join 2 on a side and only 1 on the other?


Thank you soooo much for this .... I am a beginner trying to figure out how to join all the different squares together of my first ever crocheted blanket!... With your instructions I get it ..... & there isn't too many pics !



AT LAST! A pretty way to do it! Thanks for inspiration!

Jean Butterworth

Thank you so much for these instructions. I have been trying for some time to master joining the squares, but unsuccessful. Now I can.

Vanessa McCarthy

Really helpful pictures - reassuring to know that, as a beginner, I'm on thecright track


My 9-year old daughter just finished her first blanket after making 600 granny squares. After trying different methods of sewing them together, we found your site and she quickly fell in love with your method and it was just what she was looking for. THANK YOU!!

Thank you so much... This is great❤️ from Christina, Denmark


You know when you go through the back loops only,whether you sew them or crochet them together. I have trouble when I come to the place where I have tied off the granny square, there's a knot and no loop. I don't know how to cope with that. Can you tell me please what you do? thank you x


I'm a leftie so I'd be starting at the left corner & continuing to the right across the row. What I'm confused about is adding the next granny after I finish putting two tog (using the slip stitch method) then how do I get the third one, forth one, etc. on? I'm putting together 12 squares for a lapgan & I just cut an end to work into the square when all the squares are attached. I know that's wrong but I didn't know what else to do. Help, please.


This is very very very helpful!! Thanks so much for sharing :)


Never too many pictures. Thank you for a great ttutorial!

Jennifer L Numainville

Thank you for this. I am also planning to follow your tutorial on the edging but is there one for the step in between? I think I get it, clusters of 3dc around with two in the corners and probably a sc between each. But I was looking for it and couldn't find it. Can you point me in the right direction if it's available?

Thank you for this excellent tutorial! I've just joined up my first granny square project using your instructions - without a hitch :D The front lies beautifully flat and the back is very smooth and tidy.


Lucy, I have just started crocheting and a friend pointed me to your blog. I am becoming obsessed with crocheting but I am more obsessed with your blog! I want to thank you for the inspiration you provide but also for the wonderful tutorials that are guiding me towards competency. I am crocheting my first granny square blanket together, following your instructions and finding it easy peasy! Your blog is such a ray of sunshine. Grateful thanks, Rachel.

This is an amazing tutorial - thank you! I have learnt how to crochet to finish a blanket my mother started before Alzheimer's meant she couldn't finish it, so it has meant a lot to me.

I have one question. When I joined all the horizontal rows, the blanket looks great. It lies flat and seems like all is perfect, but when I join the vertical rows it starts to buckle. The joins seem straight, but the body of the square seems to bunch up. Am I making the stitches too tight?


There's a good method on Red Heart. I'm trying it and think it's a tad quicker than this one which I've also used.


Excellent tutorial Lucy, thank you.
I'm almost ready to start joining my 80 square blanket, but didn't know how to go about it, and your advice has been brilliant.
I'll let you know how it comes together.
