Here are two options. 1. Lay two squares together, wrong sides facing each other. Using yarn in a yarn needle, do an overhand stitch in the back loops only. 2. Crochet them together in this manner: SC in front square, CH 2, SC in back square. Usually picking up every other stitch for your SCs works well. Jayne.

Putting two squares face-to-face, do a single crochet in each stitch across - either in both sides of the stitch, or just in the back of the stitch. Each way, you'll have a different look on the front.


You can use a matching, or a contrasting color. If your squares are multi-colored, why not pick out one of the inner colors to tie the squares together with.

I put the "right sides" toward each other an slip stitch
making a long strip of squares according to your size needed. Once all your strips are done then attach the strips together. Weave in any loose threads. For my kids poncho's and afghans I left the ends til last tied them in knots then weaved them ,for extra strength. I love grannie squares. have fun.
