This is Part 2 of my Daisy Afghan tutorial. In this post I will show you how to join your solid granny squares and then a quick look at how you can stitch on your daisy appliqué (or any appliqué for that matter). You can find Part 1: How to make Solid Granny Squares using the Grit Stitch HERE <—Click on highlighted text.
Now lets start joining all of those solid squares! There are a variety of ways to join granny squares, but I love joining these solid squares with the basic single crochet stitch. It leaves a ridge separating each square and gives the blanket texture and dimension. It really pairs well with the 3 dimensional daisy flower appliqué. I chose to join my squares BEFORE sewing on my appliqués because I wanted to make sure my flower was spaced inside the square evenly and not overlapping on an edge that needed to be joined.
Starting where the edges of your first two rows meet, join with white yarn and SC the edges together.
Make sure you keep the edges matched up. You may need to make two single crochets in some spots or even skip a stitch in other spots in order to keep everything lined up.
