PART 13 – SEWING

Lay the squares out in a 3 x 4, right side down

Sew down all the squares vertically, then sew across horizontally

Either use the long ends from making the squares to sew or cut a piece of yarn for sewing (no longer than 48”- otherwise it will easily get tangled)

Using stitch markers, line up your squares as evenly as possible (due to the nature of the squares for the CAL they don’t all have the same number of stitch on each side – make it as even as possible)

Thread yarn through the yarn needle. Insert yarn needle through the blo of the top two stitches and pull through.

Continue working down the squares with a whip stitch blo

If two squares are being sewn together have a different number of stitches on each side, then double up on a couple stitches on the shorter side (keeping it as even as possible)

Work in this way all the way down each square vertically. Then work across horizontally.

Fasten off.

Weave in all the ends.

See you next week for the last part – the border!

  1. You mentioned in some of the patterns that blocking would get squares to the right size. How do I block? I have never done that. I thought that would be part of this as well before I could sew them together.
