Thank yo so much for the instruction on joining granny squares as you go.


Hello! I have a quick question regarding finishing with this method. How do you block when you're done? I have only ever blocked my squares before I've joined them, and I feel like I might be overwhelmed trying to block a huge blanket! Any suggestions welcomed :)


GENIUS! I can't wait to finish the beast I'm currently joining with sc and start a NEW, EASY one!

You have made the world a better place.

Thank you, from Arizona, USA. <3


Thank you, very helpful! :-D


You are a Genius!!! I hate to sew all the squares one by one. Thank you so much

Buen día Lucy. Hace tiempo que quiero suscribirme a tu bloc, pero no lo consigo. ¿Cómo lo puedo hacer?
Por favor, dime algo.
Un saludo,

I love to try new patterns and make lots and lots of "samples". I was thinking of how neat it would be to figure out a way to "join" all these different parts into one big crazy quilt of sorts. This might just be the way. Thanks for sharing!

I just tried this for the first time, it worked great and looks fabulous! Thanks so much!


Thank you very much for your tutorial. Have a great day!!!

Lucy do you have a tutorial for a continuous join as you go? There are a couple on the internet but when you join the 4 corners together, it is not very neat..

Dear Lucy,

I was curious, what kind of yarn have you used in these photos? They colors are lovely and I'd like to get some for my stash. :-)

Thank you!

Thanks for the instructions that were easy to understand and easy to see in the pictures :-)!I enjoy your website. Frances


This is beautiful Lucy! Do you happen to have a pattern for these granny squares?


I do accept as true with all of the concepts you've offered in your post. They are really convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very quick for starters. Could you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

Goodmorning Beautyful

Beautiful, i love it.


Me encantan sus tutoriales, la felicito por sus trabajos.

Mis atentos saludos


This is brilliant - I am a total beginner and I can follow this very easily. I love the simplicity and clean look of the join. Thanks so much for posting this!


Hi Lucy, thanks so much for showing us how to do this. I am trying it now with my granny square scarf, so far so good. Hope you don;t mind me posting a link (credit) to your site, as I thought it helpful for others to know.

Have fun


Hi lucy
this looks great ,in fact your site is excellent so inspiring and cosy!
i just wondered if i'm understanding right from the above tutorial than when you use the join as you go method you only join at the spaces after you've joined the 2 squares at the corner ..so i mean you don't join the side clusters together only a stitch at the spaces.
if this is the case does that leave a gap between the squares at the side clusters and does that look a bit funny in a finished blanket?
i hope you understand my question and i'm sorry if i've miss understood your tutorial.
thank you


you can just use a yarn needle after completing the granny squares. It's looks lopsided.


Hi Lucy I do mine slightly different I put the first chain loop (off the hook)under the next block..just seems neater some how..
I have done this with my hexagon African flower
pattern,and the granny squares..love your site
I live near Bolton Lancs,,
