Feel free to substitute your preferred seaming method for this technique.
This throw uses the whip stitch to seam the squares together. I recommend lying all the squares on a flat surface, and connecting all squares by seaming the columns and rows.
The border addition is completely optional, but provides a clean finish. Sample used the two white skeins from the 15 color pack and the one white skein from the 01 color pack for the border and seaming.
Round 1: ch 1, sc in ea st around the blanket. place 3 sc sts in ea corner. slst
Round 2: ch1, *sk 1, [sc, dc, sc] in the next st* around. slst to the first st and FO.
Weave in any ends you may have remaining. If you decide to block your throw, I recommend laying it flat, spritz it with water, and let air dry or steam lightly. The sample pictured isn’t blocked.
