I am doing this blanket for my new grand son but haven't been able to figure out once its' assembled how to connect them. The instructions says to crochet together. How is that done, is it whip stiched and if so what color thread is used and if not how is it sewn together?

Can anyone please tell me how to crochet the squares together please? It doesn't say how to do this step and I am somewhat of a beginner crocheter. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Hi! I have just started this one and I am a beginner. I was doing well until the last instruction. 4th and 5th rnds: As 3rd rnd. (20 dc along each side of Motif after last rnd). Fasten off. I did the 4th and 5th rnds fine, but what do I do for these 20 dc. Do I do the corners as before (2dc, ch 2, 2dc), so essentially a 6th rnd? Or do I do a dc in each ch 2 on the corners, so essentially 2 dc in each corner along with the 20 dc on each side? Or do I do 20 dc on each side and skip the corners? Please help, very confused. Thank you in advance.

I have been crocheting for the better part of 40 years and I agree, this patter is quite difficult to read. I reworked my first square several times before getting it down. Hopefully I won't offend anyone by posting this, but I reworked the direction so they should be simpler to under. Motif A (make 13). With A, ch 4. Join with sl st to form a ring. 1st rnd: Ch 3 (counts as 1st dc) 3 dc, Ch 2, (4 dc Ch2) 3 more times in ring. Ch 2. Join with sl st to top of ch 3. (You will have 4 sides of 4 DC and 4 corners of Ch 2 spaces) 2nd rnd: Ch 3 (counts as 1st dc). 1 dc in each of next 3 dc. (2 dc. Ch 2. 2 dc) in next ch-2 sp. *1 dc in each of next 4 dc. (2 dc. Ch 2. 2 dc) in next ch-2 sp. Rep from * twice more. Join with sl st to top of ch 3. 8dc per side Once you have the first 2 rounds down, you should have the idea of it. Just remember, each round you are adding 4 DC to each side.

I just completed my diamond baby blanket in blue for a boy. I am surprised at how pretty and intricate it looks! It was time consuming to sew all of the squares together. How do you keep down the pieces of yarn that need to be hidden in the back???
