Single Crochet Join for Granny Squares

Single Crochet Join for Granny Squares | Sakeenah

Still working on the Refreshing Throw. I’ve been debating back and forth over which way to join granny squares would be best, and finally decided I like the pop of using single crochet to join granny squares. It is a visible join, so it won’t work for all projects.

It’s really simple:

  • Arrange your squares
  • With the wrong sides facing each other
  • You single crochet through the outer loops: the one closest to you on the first square and the one furthest away from you on the second square.
  • Join all the rows horizontally, then go back and crochet them vertically

You can crochet through both loops, but it would be pretty bulky.

Then onto the border, and then I’m done! This has been quiet the project. I’ve put in about 21 hours so far, but it works up so pretty!

Do you have a favorite method to join squares?

    Hi. I am also working on this throw. I haven’t gotten to the joining yet but that is where my question lies. In the original pattern it doesn’t say what color thread to use to join. this is my first time working with squares so I wasn’t sure if when I join them what color to use but I like how you did the single crochet. I think it looks nicer than the original. So when you say ‘with the wrong sides facing each other’ can you elaborate on that more? From the picture above that looks like it is the right sides next to each other.

      Hi Melissa, sorry I didn’t see your comment earlier! What you do is place the squares back to back, so the motif is facing out. Then you will see the four loops, 2 from each square, and crochet through only the outer loops, this way the sc join pops up.
