How to organize units

Here are two views that show how you should organize pieces. The second view shows also where you should work each seam method.

How to join units

There are plenty of joining methods for the granny square. In this project, I used two methods.

The first method is flat slip-stitch granny square join. This method is similar to slip stitch join, but instead of joining at the back of the squares, it is working from the front of the squares.

The second method is manual sewing with a special technique that makes it look like a coil on the right side and invisible in the other side. There are 5 steps to do this:
1. Line two squares up together, right sides facing you. You will do all your seaming on the right sides of your crochet pieces.
2. Insert your tapestry needle through the front loop of the chain corner stitch of the right square and then proceed through the front loop of the chain corner stitch of the left square. Pull the yarn through, maintaining snug tension, but not pulling it so tight that it puckers.
3. Insert your tapestry needle through the front loop of the next stitch on the right square and proceed through the front loop of the left square’s next stitch.
4. Continue like this, working from the right square to the left square. Repeat until you’ve run out of stitches and have reached the corner chains of your squares.
5. Repeat steps 1-4 for each two squares you add.


♥ You have to block your crochet pieces before joining them together.
♥ You have to keep your pieces lined up so that the stitches are always being join one for one.
♥ You have to line the pieces up and keep the seam horizontal (for 1st method) and vertical (for 2nd method) in front of you while you are seaming. This is the easiest way for me because it allows me to use my dominant right hand.


The edge is very simple. It consists of three double crochet stitches in each ch-spaces followed by a chain, the traditional stitch of the granny. We operate two lines at the front edge and the edge of the neck. The edge of the hands and the lower edge are limited to one line.
