Well well well, it was such a pleasure reading all your sweet messages on my Kaleidoscope blanket! Thank you thank you ThAnK YoU 🙂
This is as promised, the ZIG ZaG Joining method…
Hope that my explanations will be as clear as possible for you to understand… I apologize for those of you who do not understand graphic patterns…this is my only way to explain crochet 🙁 sorryyyyyyyyy 🙁
So, let’s have a try, shall we?
To begin this is the graphic pattern of the small square:
and then lets take a look to the ZiG ZaG joining graphic:
The red graphic is for the joining …You have every time to make a double crochet in your first square, 2 chain and another double crochet in the second square in EXACTLY THE SAME PLACE YOU DID THE FIRST ONE IN YOUR FIRST SQUARE !
Once this simple thing is clear all will become very easy to follow… Always always make a dc in the first square, 2 chain followed by another dc in the second square in exactly the same place…
I suggest for you, as a trial, to begin joining 9 squares to make a small blanket of 3×3 squares as in this pic:
This method (joining horizontally everything then vertically) will make the joining very fast…I took some pics to make it clearer for you…
Pic4: After all the rows are joined together horizontally, begin the vertical joining (here in this pic above, one vertical joining is done)
Hope it was easy to understand…when you just read this post you’ll feel a little bit confused maybe, the best thing to do is to take a hook and some yarn, make 9 small squares and try joining them …
Thank you for visiting today!
Sending you lots of love through this post 🙂
