Zigzag Slip Stitch Join
Join with a ss from right side to wrong side into the last chain of the working edge of your Square A as indicated on diagram below.
Slip stitch into the corresponding square from right side to wrong side.
Continue to slip stitch from in each corresponding stitch along
This will continue until you reach the first chain of the opposite corner. You will then continue this across another square to connect. This will continue until you have joined all of the squares in that column.
You will join all of the squares in the columns first and then join the rows. The photos below will show you how to work over the existing corners.
- Work the stitch as normal
- Pull the yarn through under the join
- Work the stitch over the join
- Worth the stitch as normal
Below you will find the video tutorial available in both right and left handed versions. These are great if you are a visual learner, I’ll walk you through step by step.
