No Need to Sew If You Join As You Go

Here’s a fun limerick I wrote awhile back in celebration of joining crochet motifs as you go:

Piles of projects have ends that are loose.

Their numbers, I’d like to reduce.

So I’ve learned to join as I go.

Although it is slow,

There’s no longer any excuse.

Once you learn how to do join-as-you-go crochet motifs, you’ll love how you won’t have to weave in zillions of loose ends when you’ve finished your projects. It’s definitely a technique worth learning.

    Amy, your limerick is terrific! You know of course every mom, grandmom, and textile teacher will be calming young students fears and fingers with it, right? And, it is wholesomely timeless enough to join the most celebrated and time-honored teaching rhymes for all fiber arts. Thank you for all your labors of love, for all us eager teaders, and to the industry’s legacy and future. Wa-hoo! I’m raising my pincushion to you!

    Amy, thanks for bringing these books to my attention. They sound like exactly what I have been looking for. I’m going to ask my husband if he will get them for me for my birthday.

    Quick question. I am almost finished crocheting all the squares for a granny square afghan. I didn’t know about this technique at the time I made them. Is it too late for me to join them using this joinasyougo method? Help??

      Hi Tracy,

      You’re welcome! Hope your birthday was a happy one. 🙂
      No, it isn’t too late for you to join the granny squares using the join-as-you-go method, assuming you have enough yarn to add an extra round around the outside. And if you don’t, no worries, you can always use another complementary color.
