Thanks to Lucy at Attic24, who posted this tutorial on joining squares, I have had my first go at sewing (rather than crocheting) squares together.I have always been put off ‘join as you go’ methods as half the fun (in my opinion!) is trying out different sequences and combinations of colour. This method allows you to do just that, then use an extra long end-tail to join the squares in the way you want. The joining method gives a pretty firm fabric, and I would say that the piece I have made would be more suited to a cushion cover than a blanket.
Made in Rico baby classic dk on a 5mm hook, using light green, light blue, light grey, blue, turquoise, and ice blue. I like the spring colours. and the joining method is something new to add to my toolkit!
