Number 9

Here's another way of joining squares using doubles and chains.

With wrong sides facing I crocheted a double in the pink square, ch 1. Dc in blue square, ch 2. Continue in this way 1dc, 2ch until you reach the other side of the square.

Join to the pink corner with a dc, then ch1 and dc into the blue corner. Now just repeat with the other squares.

Here it is again. The right side of the striped square is in the pic and the wrong side of the turquoise square. I did a dc on the striped square, ch 1 then a dc on the turquoise square. Ch 2 then dc on the striped, ch 2 then dc on the turquoise until the end of the squares.

Here I did one dc on the striped, ch 1, then one dc on the turquoise.

To get across to the next 2 squares, ch 1 then repeat the process.

Hope this makes sense.

Here's the complete blanket. (Note the new pair of flip flops - I wore the others out!)

All ready for its new home.
