Thank you so much! My Covid squares had been languishing , Pinterest just bamboozled me with options, finally I thought to check out your tutorials and of course there it is, super well explained.Just what I needed and I'm away again, this blanket will be completed after all.


Thank u soooo very much, this is easyer and looks so much better. I'm a left handed crocheted that is teaching myself to crochet


Thanks very much for this helpful tutorial. I enjoy your work very much ... you are an absolute genius when it comes to color. I often look through your projects on Ravelry for color inspiration. Thanks for all you do!

Going to give this method a try. Very good explanation.

Ruth Scott

Thank you for your tutorial - easy to follow. By the way, I'm in USA, but married to a Yorkshire man from Featherston. I fell in love with Yorkshire and wish we could spend 1/2 our year there - maybe one day.

Again, thank you.


My problem is that the squares are a bit rounded. How do you sort them out?

Clare Myers

Thanks for these great instructions. I think I'm going to try to crochet some knitted panels together using this kind of principle. Hopefully it will work!

how much yarn is needed for a 55" x 60" afghan, squares are 5?" Thanks.


I love your page. You have such a great way of explaining everything. Used your ripple pattern and tutorial to make a blanket for my son. lol be your little granny squares. Now using this too.


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?


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!!!


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.


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.

Beth Schneider

you are amazing.


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.


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!


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.


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!


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


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


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


Thank you so much for making it look easy with pictures...
I love Cathy Mathews an Emma Hannigans books so I make pictures of cottages on the edge of Yorkshire Dales an Pailthorpe ancestors from there..have Happy Day from Taranaki NZ Anne 15 Sept 17
