10. Different Ways To Join Granny Squares

This post contains affiliate links


Since eventually we will want to be joining our granny squares to create a blanket or other item I thought we could do a roundup of all the different techniques so you can plan your blanket. Some of these methods allow you to join as you go which is pretty handy if you are making a large blanket like me.

Note: if any of these tutorials are yours and you would like them removed please let me know :)

  3. Thank you so much for combining them all in one list. I still do my joins the old-fashioned way, but I do need to learn how to do a quicker method ( with fewer tails to weave in!).

    1. When I made my little blossom's blanket I used the first joining method. The Granny Join and I found it came together really fast. I will probably use this method for my CAL Granny Square Blanket.

  8. This is very enlightening, I have been crocheting for over 50 years and wished I knew this back then. I have an afghan I started to make and it is squares but they are 2 different colors and I could match it so I haven't finished it. What would you recommend using so You don't see it on the back? Thank you for shaaaaaring your finds with everyone, and hope you can answer my question. Thanks

    1. I like to use the single crochet together method. If you look at number 3 you can see what will look like on the front and the back. I have just about finished a blanket using this method so will put the pattern up when I am done.
