Easter C2C Blanket CAL Part 10 Joining & Border instructions

Method to join will be slip stitch joining using Color w (White).

Working in rows, join squares together in 3 columns  or rows and then join the 3 columns (rows) together at the end.

With Color w and with RS of two squares facing and WS facing out, attach yarn with a sl st through 1 loop of the sc round from each square. I used the back loop of the front square (square closest to me) and the front loop of the back square (square furthest away from me).  However, choose which loops you want to use — back/front, front/front, etc.  See which one suits you best.  However, whatever ones you choose stay consistent throughout the blanket!

Join 3 squares together from 1st column, join 3 squares together from 2nd column, join 3 squares together from 3rd column.  Once 3 columns have been joined, join columns together to form blanket of 9 squares.
