Joining the Riverwood Squares is the next course of action in the Riverwood Square CAL 2019 Series! Wow! It is hard to believe that we have been stitching up these gorgeous boys and gals for 4 months. Time sure does fly by when you are having a blast. Now lets grab our desired yarn color, the boys and gals, yarn needle, scissors, favorite beverage and maybe even a snack. Joining these fun boys and gals is going to burn some energy and take a little time.
Before we start connecting these lovely peeps together, let me say that there is no specific order they have to be in. You get to choose your layout. You can mix it up, you can match them up by the center color or color on last row, put them in number order, or whatever makes you happy. I personally have not totally decided on how I will lay out my squares. I am torn between having them in number order or by color. hmmm Enjoy!
Level of Difficulty
Red Heart Chic Sheep, #4 Worsted; Color A (VIP), Color B (Suede), Color C (Polo), Color D (Linen), 20 yards (roughly)
Hook and Notions

I suggest laying the squares in sequences of 4
Today I will be showing you two different methods to join the Riverwood Squares. You can either use the Slip Stitch Crochet Seam method or the Crochet Seam method. Either way the choice is yours.
COLORS: A – VIP; B – Suede; C – Polo; D – Linen
Working with Color D
Method One: Slip Stitch Crochet Seam
Step One: With right sides of the squares together, insert hook through two corners, and slip stitch through both corners.
Step Two: Insert hook into the next stitch through both squares, and slip stitch together.
Step Three: Continue repeating Step Two until you have worked all the way across the sides of both squares. Then fasten off and weave in ends.
Method Two: Single Crochet Seam
Step One: With right sides of the squares together, insert hook through two corners of both squares,
Step Two: slip stitch yarn through the corners to pull up a loop, chain 1, sc through both corners (in the same ones that you slip stitched through).
Step Three: sc through both squares in the next stitch along the side.
Step Four: Continue repeating Step Three until you have sc across the sides of both squares. Then fasten off and weave in ends.
