In this photo tutorial you’ll learn how to join granny squares as you go with a flat join method in crochet. This is my favourite way of joining granny squares as you go and it’s easier and prettier than the slip stitch join or the single crochet join in my opinion as it creates a smooth, braided look and it feels least confusing to me.
This tutorial shows you how to join new yarn in crochet with a slip knot and a slip stitch for your crochet blankets, granny squares and other crochet projects, in 4 easy steps.
I find the slip stitch join to be quick and easy, and it’s my favourite method to use for granny stitch projects, where it’s nice to set your mind on autopilot and not have to search your memory for any specific methods. I think you kind of learn it once, and never forget, and it looks pretty too!
I don’t know about you, but after I’ve just completed that big batch of colourful hexagons I can’t just stop now… As they have such an uplifting effect on me! Therefore… We’re going to continue with the gathered chain theme for this border to complement the starry/ spider webby looking lacy Halloween hexagons that we magicked up earlier on.
