Wow! Finally! I crocheted a bunch of hexagon granny squares. They are beautiful! However, no matter which tutorial I followed, I couldn't figure out how to join them without a huge ridge in the middle.

I did finally figure out that if I crocheted a solid color border all around that at least if I joined them you wouldn't be able to see the difference between the blocks, but I still couldn't figure out how.

Until I found this site.

Thank you so much!

I bookmarked your site so I can donate when I get some money.

Dear Lucy your a life saver, I went through so many different ways of wording what I wanted and it just did not come out right. Then ooooh believe me so heart felt, when I say the words Attic24. I knew it was you. It is 10:39pm herein the USA, state of Maine which is on the East side, smiling. One says we are across the pond. I chuckled when I first heard that expression. I saw how you were joining granny squares together, and right off I knew that is what I wanted to do. I am so pleased I found your site again. I have you saved in my favorites now, smiling here laughing with myself.
Getting near my bed time. My name is Marie, I am 69, and have done different crafts over my life time. I love to still learn more new stitches and ways of doing other things, love getting things together to have a small garden this coming spring hopefully. I am on Pinterest if anyone would like to look me up. Bless your heart Lucy, you have set my mind at ease. Thank you ,, Nite now, take care. Nite all.


Lunch have to do the weekly shopping huizen onder water at lunch, so something from Harris Teeter. Dit blog is gemaakt om vakantie huizen te bespreken, om sites te zien die over vakantie huizen gaan en om nieuws te verspreiden dat mensen hebben over vakantiehuizen.


Thank you, great explanations, great photos. As a member of the hearing impaired community, I really appreciate pictorial tutorials over YouTube. YouTube just frustrates me, as the closed caption never works and its rare to get a real link to the written pattern, recipe or formula. BTW, love your ripple afghan, that is my next project right after I crochet my granny square afghan together, now that I know the proper way. thank again!

To execute this chest exercise, you will just use a dumbbell instead of a barbell. I know it will feel like boot camp or athletic drills. You are not expected to go to the gym while stressed over something.


With more pictures always the best for learner like me, thank u so much for this post.

Is there a tutorial on the basic granny square that anyobody could direct me to please?


I found a bag of 50 grannies at Goodwill. No doubt somebody chose to donate them, rather than join them. They were the most wonderful shade of pink, with a moss green and white. I have been adding another round of white. Now I will uae white to join. Your instructions came just in time!

This is still helping people in 2013 :) Thank you so much for your contribution to my best friend's 30th birthday present! My blanket (the first thing I ever crocheted, taught entirely by bloggers and youtubers!) is looking so much better now.

Thank you SO much. I have always wanted to make a granny square blanket, but was intimidated by the thought of having to join all those motifs. I imagined hundreds of ends to darn in, and a bulky mess by the time I was finished. This makes it look easy! I will finally give it a go, thanks to you.

Oh, and you never post too many pictures for me, in your tutorials. The more the better!!! Yours are the absolute best I have ever seen. I adore your website!

Love from America!


Muchas gracias por este tutorial, actualmente estoy haciendo una manta y estoy uniendo las aplicaciones y queda genial, me ha servido de mucha ayuda, espero que puedas ver terminada mi manta en mi blog, gracias

Thank You very much. I love your blog. I come from Spain and you help me with crochet and my English and I love all your Photos too.. Besos


very very helpful!!! your squares are beautiful too.

thanks a lot!!!!

(sorry can't donate right now :)


Easy THANKYOU. I did get the knack though would choose a lighter color another time and adopt the 3 chains to the corners as suggested. Thick wool also helps find the corner chains when you are joining. But I did profit from keeping the tension loose.
I think that the rug needs a finishing edge of some sort after The squares are joined. How would you go about it?


Thank you Lucy, your blogs and instructions are brilliant. The tutorials are so easy to follow and pictures are a must! I've just finished crocheting 72 squares, they are all blocked and now I am going to follow your instructions to join them all...


Just read your instructions thanks. I'm off to finish knitting my squares so I can get going on putting them together
love your blog xx

Thank you! I'm new to crochet and have just sewn my first granny squares together using the slip stitch technique.
Thank you! X


Thank you for these instructions all the way from how you make your beginning square, since I'm new to granny squares very helpful


Thank you very much. I hate joining granny squares by stitching them, and this way is fantastic. I have joined a blanket for my daughter and the result is perfect.

Thanks from Spain.


Thanx...you've explained this very well.
Joining my Solid-Granny in this manner makes sense.


TOO MANY PICTURES????? I wish all instructions were as easy to follow as yours. Thanks a bunch!

Mie Christensen

Lucy, you are a genious. I just love your blog, and you patterns. And this tutorial will come in handy when I finish of my granny Square blanket.

I am crocheting again after 35 years! Just love your work and blog. The colours are fabulous. I am wondering what thickness of wool the above squares are worked in..and size of hook?

Marcia C. Beppler

While I've been knitting happily for close to 70 years, I've barely learned how to crochet. I can make a chain stitch! But now I am looking for instructions to help me join the 12" x 12" KNITTED squares I have made, into an afghan.

Your clear, precise, excellent instructions and photos all seem to make sense to me. Should I just go ahead and try to follow them with my knit squares of various patterns? Perhaps you have valuable comments to help me avoid total frustration !!!

Yours gratefully, Marcia
