How to join crochet shapes together

Once you've made your crochet shapes, you need to join them together!


Assembly can often be the last thing you think about when you’re making your crochet shapes, but a neat join can make all the difference to the final look of your crochet project! We show you two of our favourite ways to join motifs with crochet.


Step 1

Slip Stitch Seam: place the crochet pieces right sides together. Insert hook through both edge stitches yrh and pull through to complete 1 sl st; rep from working loosely.


Step 2

Double crochet seam: place the crochet pieces right sides together or wrong sides together for a visible seam. Work as for slip stitch seam but using dc instead of sl st.
