    Question All these granny squares, now what do I do

    Okay Dee, here are some questions.

    How do I join these squares together? I don't want to sew them together, but crochet.

    Do I wait until I have all the squares I need or can I join a few together and make a row so that it looks like I have something done?

    I almost always crochet mine together too-- I think it goes faster.

    You can slip stitch or single crochet them together. You don't have to wait til you have them all done. Do a few as you go, then the joining doesnt' seem too tedious, IMHO.

    Dee, we were posting at the same time. Thanks for offering about the pictures, but those pictures in the link are really helpful. I'm going to try putting a couple together in a bit.

    I decided to make my squares into 7 inch squares so I don't have to make quite so many. Your number yesterday Dee, about floored me.

    One more question - Do I use the same size crochet hook as I'm using the make the granny squares in order to crochet the squares together?

    I use the same size hook, so I have the same tension-- otherwise, I end up with puckers.

    I thought that was why I never heard back from you.

    Yes, like Denise says, I would use the same size hook you are making the squares with.
