Method 7 Assembling afghan with a Mattress Stitch or Ladder Stitch

Method 7
Assembling afghan with a Mattress Stitch or Ladder Stitch

A: Sewn from the back (this causes a ridge to form on the front)(same  as method #7, but sewn from the back)

Working with the wrong side of the squares up on a table, place the two squares together. With a yarn needle, and  starting at one end of the square on the right, go BETWEEN the center the top and bottom loops of the first stitch and pull yarn through, now go to the first stitch on the left square, and go BETWEEN the center of the top and bottom loops of the stitch, pull yarn through.

Keep going back and forth between the two squares, weaving them together for four or five stitches,
then pull the yarn up, firmly, gently.    Keep adding squares and weaving them together, until
you have added all your squares. You can also use this method to join thread crochet, such as tablecloths, bed spreads, etc when they are squares. I would like to thanks Jenny Seymour for her help.
