In this tutorial, I have shown how one can seamlessly join two granny square blocks.
Please note: I have used contrasting orange color to show how the row that joins two blocks will look.
You will be using a more pleasing color combination 😀
Arrange the blocks with right side up. This block is a mitered square block (Tutorial and chart / pattern can be found here).
We will first join blocks to form rows. Then we will join the rows.
Joining blocks to form rows
Start with 3 chains in the rightmost chain space of bottom square.
Next we will add 3 double crochet stitches in the rightmost chain space of the top square.
To do this, lift the top square a little and it will be easy to make those double crochet stitches.
Continue to add 3 double crochet stitches in the chain spaces like shown below.
End with one double crochet stitch.
(Important: We start and end with just one double crochet stitch)
Make more rows of blocks.
Joining Two Rows Of Granny Blocks
Place the two rows parallel to each other as shown below.
Continue joining the blocks as usual till you reach the center.
When we made rows, we ended at this spot with just one double crochet stitch. Instead of one, add 3 double crochet stitches.
In this intersection, we will be adding 4 sets of three double crochet stitches.
Then continue as usual to the end.
The 4 blocks have been seamlessly added. This is a very easy and quick method to join crochet blocks.
