Advice please!

I have been given sixty nine-round granny squares with a request to make them into an adult size blanket.

Any advice on a quick and effective joining method? I am not a big fan of sewing but I feel join-as-you-go may prove rather onerous given the scale of the project.
What would you do? All advice gratefully received…

        Oh yes, charcoal would be lovely. I think you will be surprised how quickly it comes together once you start. Remember to lay out the squares first to get a design you like and then to photograph it, because piles of squares tend to fall over or get muddled and it’s really annoying to spend time on a design only to forget what it was!

    On my current blanket I am edging each in grey, its Stylecraft yarn, colour Slate and joining them with a simple DC stitch. I had a simliar exercise as yours to do last year, and just did a one row DC border and it looks smart. It doesn’t take too long either

    1. Arrange them in a design you like. 2. Take a picture. 3. Get a group of crocheters together, provide them with dark grey or charcoal yarn and instructions and have a fun afternoon!

    Good luck with it… I do know that looking at an unstarted project is more daunting than one that has been begun though, so my advice would be to start soon! I love the idea of getting friends to help though… Hot chocolate with marshmallows, heating on, crochet and chat
