Today I’m teaching you how to crochet the Flat Slip Stitch Join!

It’s one of the most pretty ways to join multiple granny squares together, like the Classic Granny Square, Clover Leaf Granny Square & Ferris Wheel Granny Square.

This way to join squares have quickly become a favorite over here, because it’s both easy & looks great.
