Joining Squares Method 1 - Crochet together from the front

Crochet together from the front tutorial
(Tutorial uses English crochet terms)

1 Arrange your squares in a suitable colour order

2 Use a contrasting colour for joining

3 Place 2 squares wrong sides together. 
These will be the right hand squares on the 1st and 2nd rows.
Attach yarn through both corner loops

4 Place hook through both of the 1st stitches 
(4 loops on hook) and make a dc

5 Continue along whole row then fasten off at the end.

6 Repeat for all rows in the same direction.
The joining stitch will form a ridge on the top of your work.

7 Turn your blanket
 and complete the rows in the opposite direction.

This is a very strong join and I like it made in a
 contrasting colour to add another dimension to the blanket.

I am making my first Willow squares and joining 9 of them to make the front of a cushion cover - this is a very useful, clearly explained technique. Thank you!
