Question on crocheted granny squares...
I'm almost finished with all my granny squares for my daughters Chirstmas gift...a blanket for the top on her bed. My question is: How do I crochet the squares together? "Or" do I use a yarn needle and sew them together? I've never put an afghan together before (that's what I call this project) and I'm thinking I might want a solid color (maybe 2 or 3 inches) around the squares to give it a finished look. If I have to sew them together then I guess I should crochet the solid color around all of them evenly, right? And then sew them? What stitch would you use in that event?
I know some of you are experts with the crochet hook and I would love some advice or ideas on how to make this happen. Thanks to any and all of you who respond!
