Link Love: How To Join Granny Squares

Aug 29, 2011

A couple of weeks ago I picked up my box of scrap yarn and started crocheting granny squares again. "Again?" you ask. "When were you crocheting granny squares?"

Um, apparently it was over four years ago that I started crocheting granny squares from my scraps. I figure it's been about three-and-a-half years since I made one!

I was able to date this project because a link I found this afternoon is a good compliment to the tutorial I wrote up about how to spray block granny squares. And upon finding that post I discovered that I published it well over four years ago.

The link I found today is to a photo tutorial (only from 2009) over on Carina's Craftblog on how to join granny squares. Which is awesome, because it's inspired me to join mine this very same way, instead of whipstitching them together as I'd originally planned. You know, when I have enough to join. Maybe by 2016.
