    what joining do you use for the blanket squares ?

    they are cool !

    • Paula says:

      Hi Pat,
      I use the whip stitch to join blanket squares. I have a video tutorial on how to do the whip stitch even though it’s not joining squares it will give you the idea on how to do it at

      Hope this helps!

    Hi Paula,
    In row 2 of the crochet blanket square the pattern says to ” *SK 3 ch sts ” I cannot find what the abbreviation for “SK” is. Can you help with this, please?
    Many thanks.

    • Paula says:

      Hello Carmela, sk means skip. You need to skip/miss 3 chain stitches.
