Hooks and Needles: Simulated Braid Join
I've been stalking Pinterest for a way to join my granny squares together.
And when I found a picture of the Simulated Braid Join, I knew I had to do it!
Problem was the link didn't work....
And then when I found it...
You had to refer to another link to do the first part....
And then go back to the first link to finish it up...
Totally a mess!
But I persevered.
First I needed to go to the yarn store...
To find a great variegated yarn to set off the colors in my square...
And besides, do you really need an excuse to go to the yarn store?
- Accentuates the colors in the granny square.
- Squares up the granny square.
- More yarn used.
- More time involved.
And you want the low-down on how to do it? Let me break it down for you:
Edge stitch two blocks by (single crochet, chain three) in each chain-3 space, (single crochet, chain 3, single crochet, chain 3) in each corner.
Hold the two squares right sides together matching up the corners. Working through both thicknesses, single crochet in the first corner, chain 3 - single crochet - chain 3 across ending with a single crochet in the corner.
Easy peasy, right?
