There are so many ways to join your beautiful squares together and in this Part one series I will link you to 3 methods. The Simulated Braid, The Scallop Join and The Join As you Go. They are all beautiful ways to join and my favorite is the Braid Join.
Simulated Braid Join
Carolyn Christmas has a tutorial on the Simulated Braid join. This method simulates a braid join and is accomplished by crocheting pre-edged blocks together. It’s fast and easy but uses more yarn and creates a ridge on the back between squares.
This method is very similar to the flat braid join, except you do not drop lp from hook and pick it up again. This is faster and easier but does not give the twisted look of the flat braid join. Still, pretty and very useful. I’ve used this method way more than the flat braid join over the years, but now I find myself using the flat braid join more for the little extra beauty it gives, especially on special projects.
Flat Braid Join…join as you go. This is a method a lot of people use. Saves the tedius job of joining them all later on.
This video tutorial is from Moogly.
The Tight Braid Joining method I use to join squares is very similar to the Flat Braid Joining method, but tighter and closer – not as lacy!
There you have 3 ways of joining squares. I hope you find these useful and I will be post more this week. Happy Hooking everyone!
