Join-As-You-Go Flat Braid Join

Picture credit: Kristen Howell Knudson

While working on my Ansh (Tunisian Sampler CAL) blanket, I ended up with 25 squares that were of the same size but didn’t have the same stitches on their edges. To join them, I used the Flat Braid Join method which was super easy to make and worked out great! It is a lacy join that is made up of chains and single crochet stitches only.

Here is the Ansh (Tunisian Sampler) blanket where I joined the squares with the Flat Braid Join and made a crochet chain border around it.
