Materials you’ll need:

  • Granny squares
  • Yarn in a coordinating color
  • Crochet hook (size should match the yarn you’re using)


  1. Lay Out Your Squares: Arrange your granny squares in the desired pattern and order. This will help you visualize how your finished project will look.
  2. Thread Your Yarn: Thread a length of yarn (about 24 inches) onto a yarn needle. This yarn should be in a color that complements your granny squares.
  3. Position the Squares: Place two granny squares you want to join with the right sides facing each other. This means the front sides should be on the inside, and the wrong sides should be facing out.
  4. Start at a Corner: Insert your yarn needle through the corner stitches of both squares. The corner stitches are typically chains that create the corners of your granny square.
  5. Whipstitch the First Side: Bring the needle and yarn under the two loops of the first stitch on one square and then under the two loops of the first stitch on the other square. Continue this whipstitch pattern along the side, working through both squares’ corresponding stitches.
  6. Continue Around the Corner: When you reach the corner, you can either stitch directly into the chain space or work a few stitches in the last chain stitch. This helps secure the corner.
  7. Continue Stitching: Whipstitch along the next side, following the same pattern until you reach the next corner.
  8. Repeat Steps 5-7: Continue this process, working your way around all four sides of the squares. When you reach the final corner, stitch securely, and then tie off your yarn by making a small knot.
  9. Weave in Ends: Using your yarn needle, weave in the loose ends of the yarn to secure them. Trim any excess yarn.
  10. Repeat for All Squares: Repeat the process for joining all the granny squares in your project.
  11. Blocking (optional): If your granny squares are uneven, you might want to block the entire project. This involves gently wetting the squares, pinning them into the correct shape, and allowing them to dry. This can create a neater and more uniform look.

Remember, there are many other methods to join granny squares, including slip stitch joins, single crochet joins, and more. The method you choose may depend on your project’s specific needs and your personal preference.


So here are some tips:

Block the granny squares: Before you even start to join the crochet squares, it is very important to block each one individually. But what is the lock for? You must be asking yourself. Well, if that’s your question, know that blocking helps to match the size of the squares and will allow you to better visualize the pattern. You can use pins or even some yarn to hold the edges to a flat, smooth surface, gently stretching the fabric. Next, you must moisten them with water or use a blocking spray. Make sure they are completely dry before proceeding.

Choose the method that best suits your project and with which you are most skilled. There are several ways you can join your squares, the most common are sewing, joining with a low point and joining with a slip stitch. Each of the methods has its advantages and you can choose according to the desired effect on the look of your piece after finishing it.

Sewing: With a tapestry needle and yarn the same color as the yarn in the square, you can sew the squares together. You must align the edges of the squares and insert the needle, passing it through the upper loop of both squares. Then you continue your work by sewing along the edge, making small, even stitches. This technique is very discreet, perfect for projects where the joint must be more “invisible”.

Union with a low point: In this technique, the necessary tool for joining the squares is a crochet hook. Line up the edges of the squares and insert the needle into the first stitch of the square on the left. After that you will direct the needle to the same point as the square on the right and insert it there and make a normal single crochet. Repeat the process along the edge of the squares, making single crochets in each pair of stitches. The result of this combination is visibly apparent, but leaves the piece with a very elegant decorative touch.

Union with flap slip stitch: It is very similar to the previous technique. Using a crochet hook, after lining up your squares correctly, you will do the similar process. Make sure you line up your squares, huh? Align the edges of the squares and insert the crochet hook into the first point of the left square, then into the corresponding point of the right square and make a slip stitch. You will repeat this process along the edge, making slip stitches in each pair of stitches. The look that this joint will give to this piece is almost invisible, perfect for projects that require a uniform appearance.
