I joined squares using this method and it worked great, except the sides of the granny squares that are on the outside are curved. So when I crochet around the whole thing it’s not a square, but more like a square shaped text bubble. Do you have a soluntion for this?

CarolynR

Your explanation and photos takes the intimidation out of my first attempt at joining squares. I didn't particularly care for the appearance of sewn edges, and this offered the perfect method for achieving a simple, clean appearance without competing with or diminishing the work in the square itself. I'm a fan of yours from now on ... thank you!!!

Niki

Can't believe my luck. Was looking for an easy, clear explanation on joining granny squares by crochet and got your tutorial first up. Super easy, great photos and clear instructions Thanks.

Bev

Thank you for the pictures. But I’m wanting to make a join that doesn’t leave a seam, least not one that has a fold out area like this one.
If anyone has an example of one way to join that is more smooth I’d like to know thank you. Like I could do dc all over but it too leaves a seam.

How much yarn will I need to join the harmony afghan?

Dimitra Tzamtzis

Thank you for this tutorial. Just finished joining 15 squares for a lap blanket. Super easy and fun.

Jackie

You are my 'go to' place for help! Love the clear instructions, and you can never have too many photos to help the uninformed! Thank you!

Carolyn

The easiest and simplest way of joining granny squares. The squares sit nice and flat, and look neat on the right and the wrong side. Thank you for your help.

Alex

This is a very clean way to join squares. It has the added benefit of taking very little yarn if you are running short. I wish I could embed a picture; my project turned out well! Thank you!

Emilia

Hi Lucy, I've been searching for your tutorial for joining squares using the extra-long ends. I seem to remember a diagram with the squares laid out in certain positions so as to use the ends for joining! But I can't find it on your site!! Can you help? Or have I imagined it??!

Love your website - my go-to for patterns and inspiration!

This is by far the easiest instructions I’ve seen for joining Granny Squares. I’m a concrete person, so I loved the step-by-step photos. I’ve done both the double crochet and whip stitch methods. This is faster and it looks so professional. Thank you very much

Kris

Thank you! This was very helpful! I love the colors you use...so cheery :)

Amy

There can never be too many pics. So good. Thank you.

A-Anne

Sandra

Brilliant instructions Lucy. I really wasn't looking forward to joining my squares as they're all different but I've just done the first row and they've joined beautifully. Thank you, thank you! I'm a very happy bunny :)

Shirley Turner

I am finishing a scrap granny square therefore cleaning up a lot of bits of yarn. Am certainly going to use your way of fastening my squares together. Thanks Shirley

Kim Quinn

Hi Della. Saw your post about trouble laying flat. Did you ever figure it out? Can I help? Once it clicked it was a true Ah-ha! moment.

Kim Quinn

I just want and need to say THANK YOU! Have wondered for years how to join squares and never occurred to me the way you slip stitch them together using outside of each stitch. Lays beautifully!Again, many thanks.

carol Woolcock

Thank you so much for the very clear instructions. I have just completed 240 x 10cm squares for a rug for my great niece's wedding present. I was searching for an efficient way to join them. Carol
