20 Unique Ways to Join Afghan Squares

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

Last week I received an email request to find a fellow Crocheter some Afghan Square Joining options.  In an effort to help her, I have located 20 Unique Ways to Join Afghan Squares.

Many of these joining methods can be done with your yarn and crochet hook rather than with hand sewing. Some methods let you join as you go, working straight into your granny squares as you make them, to create your blanket.

If you know of any other ways to join afghan squares that I have not included, please feel free to leave me a comment on this post. If you have a link to the tutorial instructions or YouTube video please let me know so I can include it in the post to make it easier for others to find.
