Do you have your crochet blanket from childhood?
Have your grandparents or mother made one for you?
The warmth and love that comes from that crochet blanket are beyond words.
Do you want to make one for your grandparent to show them your love?
Then this article is for you because I will be discussing 10 beautiful ways to join granny squares.
Grab a cup of coffee and let’s start making a beautiful crochet blanket.
What are granny squares?
A granny square is a piece of square fabric that is produced in crochet by working from the center to outwards. You can make blankets, pillow covers, purses, or decoration pieces out of granny squares by stitching multiple granny squares together.
You can make a granny square with three or four rounds if you are making bigger squares. And then there are multiple ways to join them together.
10 Ways to Join Granny Squares
Celtic Lace Join
This is a very elaborate and beautiful design. Though it looks tough to do once you start working on it, it becomes easy and all the four squares are joined with a beautiful center.

Mattress Stitch Seaming
It is a vertical seaming technique that creates an invisible join. It is more like sewn rather than crocheted.

Flat Braid Join
Flat Braid Join is a simple and beautiful joining technique. You can do it for special projects because the twisted knots give a very pretty look to the joints.
