Help-how do I sew crocheted pieces together?

Question

Hi all! For months now I have been working on an afghan from the Lion Brand website called Patchwork Motif Afghan. It is for my cousin's wedding which is in about 3 weeks. I am almost done with the pieces, but it gives no info on how to sew the pieces together. They are multi colored, and I only got the number of skiens it said I needed so I only have about half a skein (or less) left of each color.

 

So, how do I sew these pieces together that are multi-colored?

 

Here is the link to the afghan for reference.

 

Thanks so much!

Since those pieces are all worked in the round, it will be easier to join them because you will have the stitches to work in, rather than the rough edges. You can sew them together with a yarn needle and just a whipstitch. Some people prefer to go only through the back loops (http://www.crochetcabana.com/tutorials/joining_squares.htm) or you can go through both loops if you prefer.

 

Another method is to crochet them together with a slip stitch (http://www.crochetcabana.com/tutorials/joining_squares2.htm) or single crochet (http://www.crochetcabana.com/tutorials/joining_squares5.htm)if you prefer the texture. This is also usually through the back loops only so that the blanket will lie flat. You can slip stitch on the back or on the front (different looks, but both are pretty).

 

That is a beautiful blanket; I am glad you guided me to the pattern!

great, thank you so much! Are both ways durable? I want the blanket to last, um, forever, LOL.

 

Also, do I need to use one color to sew or slipstich, or multiple colors? will it show?

I don't have any help for sewing the pieces together (sorry!) but I wanted to thank you for showing me this pattern. It's a beautiful piece and I hope it gets sewn up the way you like.

Thanks! I like it too and I hope my cousin loves it. It has taken me months to crochet the pieces.
