5 Ways to Join

It’s easier to show you how the ways to join your granny squares and motifs together through a tutorial. Today, let me demonstrate that for you.

In this tutorial, you will learn the following:

  1. Whip Stitch
  2. Invisible Seam
  3. Back Loop Join
  4. Single Crochet Join
  5. Zig Zag Join

For demonstration reasons, I used a really bright colour when joining the blue squares together to show you where to place your stitch work. For most of you, you will use the same colour of yarn of the exterior border of the square and it will blend really well.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    I have several HDC squares that need joined for a graphgan. They are different sizes but I would like to join them so that it appears as seamless as possible. Which method would you recommend? Also, should I add a SC border before attempting to join? Thanks for your help!

    Which joining method would you prefer for uneven squares? Also, do you recommend adding a border before joining? All of my squares are HDC. I know I do not want a raised join. I want it all to look like a seamless piece. Thanks for your help!
