Admin Mary here! Hello!
I chose to do a tight join for my Bear’s Blanket. This is my first tutorial, so hopefully it makes sense… Let me know if there is anything I can improve on. I’m here to make it as clear as I can. 🙂
First, I did not join the two DCs in the corner, but I DC into the next DC, then I took my hook off, and inserted it into the matching DC on the other block, like so:

Then I picked up that lonely, little loop and pulled it through:
Then, I DC into the original block:
Then repeat the process over and over until you want to stop. It should look something like this:
A nice, tight join without having to sew – I am a big fan of that!
If you have any questions – please feel free to contact me here in the comment section, or message me on my facebook page, or find me on Instagram! I also would love to hear any other joining techniques that you have used, too!
