If any of you have nabbed Rachele’s great Gumball pattern, then this joining method is going to be easy-peasy for you. I modified what she had, and decided to not join the two DCs that I put into the corners, and instead join every DC along the side. Basically, you make a DC, then drop if off your hook, go into the top of the DC on the other square, grab the loop on the DC you made, and pull it through… continue until everything is joined. If there’s interest, I’d be happy to post a tutorial. Just let me know! It makes for a very strong, finished join… as seen here:
Also, I have been really excited seeing all the progress everyone else is making… check out a few of them!
