A Joining Decision

During the summer I have been working on the bedspread I am making since I picked up the hook once again.

When I had 50 granny squares stacked in my bag, I decided I needed to join them. Laying them out so I could have an idea in my head what they would look like, I searched the internet for ways in which I could use to join them.

I knew that I did not want to sew them together. In the past I have crocheted the squares together and I knew I wanted to do the same. After much browsing on YouTube, I decided to use the double crochet stitch to join them.

I liked the look of the ridge that is formed when joining and decided that I would use it for the right side of my bedspread.

After joining the first two rows, I decided to create my rows of eight squares – and then join the rows together.

With the joining of the rows, the blanket started to grow and get heavy. I would sit with my feet up and cover my legs on the few cool days we had.

Once I had joined all the squares, I saw that I had reached the halfway mark of my project.

Fifty squares had been made and joined but I had quite a few more to make.

What project are you currently working on?
