I’ve recently seen a lot of crochet blankets being worked on. I have also finished one a few days ago. As a result, I’ve been thinking of the best ways of joining crochet work.
After a little research, I was amazed to see how many different ways there are to do this. Choosing a method depends on the colour, design and effect you want to create. So here are 14 ways to join your work. Let me know if you can think of other methods. Click on the titles for a link to a tutorial.
Whipstitch – sew them together. Nice, flat and involves a needle.
“Zipper” Method – amazing flat crochet join which makes a feature out of your join.
Invisible Seam join – the opposite of the Zipper Method.
Unusual “Dude” Join – I’m not sure how to describe this but it is very pretty
Slip-stitch join – easy and neat
Chain join – simple, decorative and lacy.
Single crochet join – the one I tend to use.
Invisible join – magic!
Scallop join – a classic and elegant join.
Flat Braid join – provides a lovely frame for your crochet.
Simulated Braid join – for when you want to go all out.
Granny square join – the old faithful.
Join as you go - for those who just have no patience (like me)
Tunisian Crochet join – I MUST learn this technique!
