Joining the squares
Place the squares flatly as you wish to have them in the blanket.
Sew or crochet them together in one direction and then in other direction.
I crocheted them together with ss to the BL. When I held 2 squares back-to back BLs are: 2nd loop on the square near to you, 1st loop of the farer square.
Ss to both corner chains, (27 ss to sc, ss to corner ch, ch2, ss to corner ch) repeat to join all squares in row, finish the row with ss to both corner chains. Do not twist the squares. Put a marker to first square.
When creating the edge, I had to reduce the number of stitches, because the edge rippled. Every square I reduced the number by 2. Please check the condition of your edge, if necessary, unwind and adjust the number of stitches according to the needs of your project. Attach new color of yarn to the corner with a ss, tighten the ss before starting the row.
