Once all your squares are made and blocked, arrange them like so:
For the graph above, each black outlined square is one granny square
When sewing the squares, I used a whip stitch and I changed the joining color to match the squares I was joining to make the blanket look as seamless as possible. There are a lot of ends to weave in, but the seamless look it very much worth it!
At some points there will be squares with two different colors next to each other. I just used the cream to sew these squares.
After setting out all my squares I sewed down all the rows vertically and the across horizontally.
Cut a long piece of yarn (no longer than 48” – otherwise it will easily get tangled)
With your yarn needle, join yarn in the topmost ch of the first 2 squares. Using a whip stich sew the squares together. Continue until you reach a different color, then fasten off
Join the next color in the last ch of the previous squares, then continue to whipstitch the squares together
And that’s it for this week! Next week is the last week and we’ll weave in all our ends and add a simple border!
