Decisions once more

A friend wanted to know how to join granny squares and we explored different ways of sewing or crocheting them together.  One that I experimented with was this from Carina's Craft blog. What an ingenious way of connecting squares.

I thought I'd have a go this way for DS's blanket. It's a reasonably quick and easy method even though it uses up more yarn. It looks as though the whole blanket has been done in treble shells, (which it has) but ...

... my blanket looked rather crooked. I know that this can be blocked to make everything 'square' but it didn't look right with my squares so ...

... I think I'll join them in a similar way to DD's blanket to make it even more colourful.

This way takes time and is a bit fiddly but it's a long way off Christmas so I think I'll make it!


  1. I've got to learn to crochet!! Love your work!

  2. I love this way of stitching the rows together. I have never seen this before.
