Joining Crochet Motifs

with Edie Eckman
Everybody loves to crochet granny squares. Nobody likes to sew them together! Edie Eckman solves the problem with 11 elegant joining techniques.

Conquer that stack of crocheted motifs and turn them into a beautiful finished project! Edie Eckman shows you creative ways to join granny squares, hexagons and other shapes with smooth seams and corners that don't pucker. You'll learn 11 different crocheted connections, including four join-as-you-go techniques, so when you're done, you're done! Use a crochet hook or yarn needle to make the joins invisible or work them in a contrasting color for design interest. Lacy filler and edge stitches add airiness to your project, and the ingenious Continuous Final Round lets you seam up your whole design with one piece of yarn. Add lots of new techniques to your crochet bag of tricks, with help from the author of The Crochet Answer Book. Plus, Edie's blanket pattern, featuring six pretty square variations, is included free!

"Thoroughly enjoyed this class! I've been making simple granny squares a long time, but this class still had lots to teach me. In addition to the 11 or 12 joining techniques (many of which were new to me), I also improved in my chart reading, and invisible joins. Also learned a stitch, 'standing double crochet,' which I really like the look of and will enjoy using more. Just added Edie Eckman's new motif book to my wish list."
