Join expert Edie Eckman and find out what Join as You Go, or JAYgo, is all about. Edie goes over some of the projects this method is best used for and the two main things to consider as you crochet: the point(s) at which the piece will be connected and the actual method used when making the connection.
Creating Square Motifs (18:45)
The Join as You Go method works wonderfully for motifs with straight sides that you’d prefer not to seam together. Edie leads you through the basic square motif to kick things off. Then, find out how to work a square motif in the round, creating straight sides as you go.
Joining Squares (23:19)
Work a small project as Edie demonstrates how to join several square motifs together. Along the way, learn tips for weaving in ends in JAYgo as well as planning and assembling the desired layout for your squares.
Edie loves hexagons! As you learn how to create them, you’ll discover the many joining opportunities that come with having six sides. Then, follow along step by step to join your hexagons in two ways, side-to-side and corner-to-corner, using a flat join.
Triangles are less common, but there’s no reason you can’t JAYgo them too! Start with a simple triangle motif before Edie shares how to join it to others using a single join. Not sure what a single join is? She covers all of the characteristics and even shares a few things you need to know for triangle success.
How do you join shapes that don’t have any sides? Find out as Edie guides you through the world of circles. Begin by creating a circle from the first three rounds of your square motif. Then, find out how to join your circles, and take a look at how the process differs from other shapes covered in class.
Octagons & Filler Motifs (24:59)
Octagons work a lot like hexagons, but you can leave room for fun fillers as you join them. Discover the steps for stitch-to-stitch joins along a solid edge before you get some exciting filler options for the spaces you create. Class ends with stunning project examples sure to inspire your creativity.
