Crocheted granny squares are a classic motif that many crocheters enjoy making. These squares can be made in a variety of ways and used in all sorts of projects. Granny square blankets, pillows, and vests are the perfect way to play with color and make something beautiful at the same time. When making these motifs, the idea of attaching them all together can be a bit of overwhelming. There are many ways that granny squares can be put together. In this video, crocheter Mister Domestic demonstrates joining granny squares using the join-as-you-go method.

Mister Domestic begins with one granny square already completed. He is working on the next granny square, which needs the final round put onto it. He works the first side, and when he gets to the corner, he begins attaching it to the already completed granny square. He works three double crochet stitches into the corner and chains one stitch. He then slip stitches into the center of the chain-3 in the corner of the completed square, and then chains one more stitch and works three more double crochets into the chain-space to complete the corner. The corners are now attached.

He continues joining as he goes down the side joining the two squares together. Instead of working a chain-one, he slip stitches around the chain space of the completed square to attach. He repeats this until he gets to the corner, working this corner in the same manner as the first one. The granny squares are now attached!
