I have been struggling since I got my pin loom, trying to figure out how to join squares together using crochet. I was trying different ways but didn’t like anything I saw online. So this morning I shelled out for Margaret Stump’s book on pin looms, and I figured it out after reading her section on joining.
(The piece below is actually a perfect square. I was having trouble getting the photo angle right.)
It looks exactly the way I want it to. I’m putting a single crochet edge on every square, and then stitching them together to make the shawlette/kerchief/thing. Fortunately my crochet skills, which I haven’t used in 20 years, are not completely gone. There are some other joining methods I’ll be trying on future projects, too. I don’t really like the projects in Stump’s book — like, I am never making a set of dolls that look like an Amish family — but there’s some good info on how to do things.
