    How to attach blocks (Join as you go method) 

    I like to make all blocks up to Rond 5, then ill use this method to join each block as round 6 is being crocheted. You'll need one complete block to start.

    • Crochet one side of round 6
    • When you get to your first corner DC3 then CH1
    • SS into any corner (CH2 space) from block you want to attach to
    • Finish final 3DC for that corner
    • SS into space between 3DC
    • 3DC into next space.
    • Repeat until you get to the next corner. 
    • Attach this corner the same way as the last

    • CH3 (counts as a DC) + 6DC into ring

    • CH5 (counts as 1DC + CH2)

    Round 3

    • Attach new color in first CH2 space + CH2 (counts as DC)
