groovyghan progress

groovyghan dots joined

I've gotten the dot squares joined together now. It's hard to get a good shot of the strip, it's very long! It's been pretty slow moving with this blanket so far but I should be picking things up soon, my daughter starts kindergarden tomorrow, so she'll be gone every afternoon.

To join the squares, I used this invisible join method. It really is invisible! It seems difficult when you first try it but it's easy to get the hang of. It's my new favorite joining method!

  1. Oooh Fabulous! how big are the squares? i couldn't see any pacific size in the pattern ;0) xxx

  2. This is looking so pretty - I love the idea of a dot-pattern afghan! Am off to investigate the invisible joining tutorial, too. Yours looks super-neat and super-inspiring. :)

  3. Wow - that really is invisible. I've never seen anyone else use it before. I can't wait to see this when it's all finished. It's going to be gorgeous!

  4. Wow! I've used that join in knitting, but never thought to try it with crochet. Ha! It's called mattress stitch, I think.

  5. Your strips are so pretty, and that is the most invisible crochet project seam I have ever seen, ever. Well done! :)

  6. Love the invisible join method - looks great!
