I made this granny square yesterday. I have the leaflet, somewhere, but don't recall the name of it. I weaved in the ends this morning. This makes 5 squares, and I don't know if I will make more. I am just cruising here, waiting for the pain to go away, and doing some rounds on the Spiderman afghan, basically mindless crochet, while I watch Pygmalion (1938, by George Bernard Shaw). If you've seen My Fair Lady, this is the 1938 movie. I really enjoy seeing the difference between both movies, how the Audrey Hepbourn movie was set at the turn-of-the-century 1900's vs this movie, which looks almost contemporary.
There is a crocheter who is looking for a good way to join his granny squares. I wonder how THIS afghan will be joined. There is:
- slip stitching on the right side
- slip stitching on the wrong side (hides the joining)
- single crochet joining on the right side- makes a sort of frame around each square
- whip stitch, back loops only- makes for an almost invisible joining
- whip stitch both loops- shows the joining and can be part of the color scheme
- Priscilla Hewitt's braid joining (link to come) which is nice and lacey
- join-as-you-go joining- you join with a single crochet or slip stitch at the end of each round of granny square
- there's another method, which I don't remember but hope to add later
Do tell me which one you prefer and why. Thanks a bunch!
P.S. Here's the Spiderman Afghan so far:
