Join and Border time! Today we will join the squares and add the border to our 7 Day Sampler Afghan Stitch Along.

I choose the Zig Zag Horizontal and Vertical joining method for this motif because it’s fast and no sewing required!  The border is 3 rounds, using one of the textures from the squares.  If you prefer using a different stitch on the border, go for it!

When you upload your project to The Crochet Crowd Stitch Social Group or Instagram, feel free to tag me so I can see what you have crocheted.  Follow me on Instagram @ jeannestein or on Facebook.  My designs can also be saved in your Ravelry favorites by following me HERE.

    Love how quickly this join is coming together. And the border Jeanne has chosen is very beautiful 😍. Thanks Jeanne and Mikey for sharing your wonderful talents.

    Is there a suggested layout for the baby size?

    • Yes, if you see the tutorial. The baby size is on there. 😀 It’s the same chart you see in the diagram but it’s just a piece of the big one. See the video for more clarity.
