My afghan I am making for my grandbaby is almost done thanks to your wonderful tutorial. BTW, I love the colors in your work, so bright and cheery!

Muchas Gracias,

Oh wow, thanks so much for putting this method up. I have such a difficult time joining squares and I love to make them. Now I can make the squares and join them instead of sending them off to someone else. Yea!!!


o i see how Joining Granny Squares

sorry for the questen
but i love too hook!!!

Fantastic tutorial, and the pictures were very helpful in illustrating your method.

I'm assuming this method can be fairly easily adapted to joining one, or more, square(s) to an already existing project... not in rows etc.

Perhaps you could illustrate that technique some time.

Thanks again for all the great information.


Great, Lucy! Thank you so much for sharing this. For sure this will be part of my next pieces. I am used to join squares hooking both loops, not only the outside. Works, but the result is terrible.

You are sooo tallented! Your work is amazing and your blog is ,bea,utiful aswell x

Thanks so much I wish I had seen this before I put my daughters blanket together, but since I did something wrong the stitching holding it together i n areas came out so I am going to take it apart and join them like this tonight, then maybe it willl withstand more than three washings. It broke her little heart and mine to see it coming apart hers because it is her blanket mommy made because of all the work I put into it to get it ready before Last christmas.


Thanks so much for the great instructions---I just scored 58 granny squares at an estate sale and can't wait to make them into an afghan.

Thanks again!


Your crochet instructions are wonderful
and the colour scheme out of this world.
Will be having a go in the next few days.
Thank you!


I am a beginner...and this is a great tutorial! Thanks!

Hi Lucy,

I am not sure whether you got my last comment as I can't see it on here? I have tried your tutorial on joining Granny Squares and they have seamed to gether quite well, however! the squares semm to have puckered..what am I doing wrong? maybe they were too tight to begin with? is there something I can do to sort it out? sorry to bombard you with so many questions, I am new to all this and this is my first attempt at making anything! hope you are well, would so appreciate any crochet wisdom you can offer if you have a minute. Thank you! Andrea.x.


Lucy, thank you so much for your delightful blog - but especially the detailed, pictorial instructions! I have thoroughly enjoyed perusing your lovely, home-y posts, and now that I'm nearing the end of a granny-square afghan I'm pleased to find your instructions on joining the squares. Many thanks!

P.S. One day I hope to return to England. Your pictures bring back such lovely memories for me. :-)


Thanks so much for adding the pictures with the written instructions. It makes so much more sense to me when I can look at the pictures also. This is my first time making granny aquares and with your instructions I'm sure I'll do more... THANKS SO MUCH


I've stumbled across your blog tonight and firstly can I say how wonderfully full of colour it is, so cheery on these grey days. I happened to spot your granny square tutorial also, which is perfect as only today I have been stitching granny squares together for the very first time and was very disappointed with the results. Shall unpick them and try your method. Thanks so much.


Thank you for this post! I had no idea how to join them. Does it matter if some are smaller than others? I put down the project for months and picked it back up using a size larger needle and crocheted about 20 more squares that are slightly bigger than the first 50 or so. Thanks!


Lucy, I discovered your blog earlier this week when I saw this marvellous little blanket on the blog of Mamoiselle K. I asked her whether she had the tuto and she referred me to your blog which is wonderful ! So fresh and full of colours and just what I feel like doing at the moment... So tonight I tried the Summer flowers granny square. I made two and joined them, all so easy. Your explanations are crystal clear;and I'm not even an English speaker, I realize ;-) There I am then, ready to make a little blanket for the future baby of my friend Eva ! I'll buy the wool tomorrow (mmmh, lovely colours in alpaga, I'll dream of them tonight). Thank you for sharing your secrets and being so generou s ! Pascale from Belgium

Thanks so much for your blog and sharing your work with us.
I have never made a ripple before and need to for my husbands daughter you made it easy. Wonder do you have the V stitch afghan? I have been searching for that.

Doreen Brooks

was wondering do you have a pattern for a v stitch afghan? been searching all over and can't find it anywhere.

I love your work I plan on using your joining method with my flower afghan that I am makng


I've just made my first ever 4 squares and am planning to do a blanket for my girls. I will definitely try this method. You explained it so well, Lucy. Thanks a lot for sharing it. Your blog is always a pleasure to read. Enjoy the weekend! Pati from London xx


Gee you make this stuff look easy! Thank heavens! I like this method as opposed to sewing them together. Glad I looked at your method first. Now I just need to do it! Terrific tute!


Thanks so much for all of the pictures and your great descriptions. It REALLY helps! Off to stitch together my pillow top!! :) :) :)

Thanks so much for this. Your tutorials are always so easy to understand - very user-friendly. :-) Thanks for sharing.


What a wonderful blog, really beautiful. My mother used to crochet her squares together, she said it was a stonger join. My grandmother sewed her squares together and some of her blankets have had to be mended and none of my mothers have. Whenever I had squares to put together my mom would do that for me. Now I am having to do it myself and didn't know how until now. Thanks you so much.


This is the most helpful site I have found on Joining! the pictures are great! I am making squares, but as a beginner I am overwhelmed trying to figure out all the ways to join them. Other instructions read like algebra to me. This seems clear and easy compared to the other options I have been reading up on. thanks! I can do this!!!
