Hi anitalansberry 182 4989, we have a helpful article including video tutorials on how to join granny squares here: We hope this helps! - Editors of AllFreeCrochet

These hexagons are so neat and tidy looking. They are very crisp and sharp. I do not think they are blocked, so they do look amazing. To know how to make a hexagon is kind of one of those things that every crafter should know how to do. It is a great step by step tutorial. Great job!

Free and easy. Oh boy, two of my favorite words. The third being either inexpensive or economical. This is a great tutorial for beginners and a nice little refresher or reminder pattern for us more advanced crocheters. I forget there are other ways to do a granny style pattern. I would like to use it for making a purse. Black and white would really look nice. Thank you for the idea.
