If you are wanting to attach your blocks using the join as you go method make sure to crochet one complete block. Then you will attach each block together during Round 2 of the boarder. To see how to do this method watch my YouTube video starting at 35:53. The video can be found above.

I truly hope you enjoyed crocheting this Christmas tree block! Please let me know if you need anything!
