As an experienced crocheter, I would try different ways to sew them together, first one being (using the same color yarn at each juncture) crochet them together. If this leaves too much of a ridge, just use the whip stitch. When Red Heart specifies the pattern for an experienced crocheter, they don't feel the need to give instructions for common techniques. Also in answer to the other question everyone seems to ask, there is a link called "pattern" under the Gauge. It will take you to the Red Heart website for this pattern.

The question from tjernigan 1218430 on July, 2012 has still not been answered. What method is used to sew the squares together and was the color of the thread changed as the color of the squares changed? When you click on the "Pattern" link at the bottom of the materials list all you get is the pattern and the diagram. There is no explanation for the question asked. Still waiting, April, 2013.

What method was used to sew the squares together? Was the color of the thread changed as the color of the squares changed or was one color used throughout?

Click on the link "Pattern" right after the "materials" section of the instructions. This will get you a PDF file that includes the graph for putting together.

Missing the diagram... would be most helpful if it was there.

It says to follow the diagram in order to put the squares together where is the diagram? I do think this is a beautiful throw and plan on making soon. Thank you!
