Do you love to crochet granny squares and other motifs but often struggle when it comes time to join those motifs together? If this question strikes a chord, this class was designed with you in mind. Work alongside crochet expert Ellen Gormley as she teaches 11 versatile joining techniques that will showcase those motifs you've lovingly crocheted.

First Ellen starts with sewing motifs together and then moves to joining them with crochet. Several variations of each method are included. Last you will learn multiple join-as-you-go techniques for that no-sew approach everyone loves. Finally, Ellen will wrap up the class by demonstrating the joining method used for the great projects included in the class: the Annabelle Baby Blanket, the Barbara Lacy Scarf and the Portia Pillow Sleeve.

In this class you'll learn how to:
  • Provide sturdy joins well-suited to square motifs by whipstitching motifs together through either inner or outer loops.
  • Create an invisible, durable seam with the mattress stitch.
  • Add minimal bulk by crocheting motifs together with slip stitches.
  • Achieve a raised decorative outline around motifs with single crochet through the front or back loop.
  • Eliminate hours of joining motifs at the end of your project using the ever popular join-as-you-go method with slip stitches and the drop-hook-and-join technique.
  • Create a decorative look by connecting motifs with the twisted vine join.
  • Execute a lacy result by joining motifs using taller stitches.
Class includes complete instructions to make three exclusive projects: Annabelle Blanket, Barbara Lacy Scarf and Portia Pillow Sleeve.

I've been crocheting for several years but I need a review of joining methods and Ellen's class is a perfect solution. She gives clear and easy to understand instructions. I appreciate her nice manicure too. Thanks

Ellen is an excellent instructor. I am fairly new at crochet. I learned the granny square while watching Ellen on Knit and Crochet now. I picked up the craft from Ellen as I have been trying to learn on my own for years. I finally created a granny square afghan for a baby. It turned out really great. As I now have Ellen's Learn to on Crocheted Motifs, I have joined the squares, crocheted an edging and gave this beautiful afghan as a baby gift. The family absolutely loved it. Thanks so much Ellen..

Excellent Class! I love to crochet Granny Squares, but have always dreaded putting them together in the end. After this class I now love joining them too!
