Putting it all together
 
Below is an illustration of how I put my squares together. However you can change this order to suit yourself. As I have said before nothing on theses pages is written in stone. For instance, if you really like one square you could make the whole afghan in just one square or any combination you prefer.
 
I crocheted mine together but you can sew them together if you want. The crochet makes a ridge I like when worked on the front side of the afghan. It will give a smooth appearance to the backside. If you prefer the smooth side on the front just work the crochet from the back.

I used a size I (as in Ida) crochet hook.
 
Study your square, you will notice that along the sides it appears as a little knot and a loop, a knot and a loop all along the side. I crocheted through the loops placing my needle under both strands of the loop for more strength. 
With wrong sides together, run your crochet hook through the first set of stitches on your square. Bring through a loop. Then crochet 1 stitch in the loop, Wrap your yarn around the needle 1 time and go into the next loop of your square. Bring the yarn through you will now have 3 strands of yarn on your needle. Crochet off 2 you will have 2 strands left, crochet off theses 2 strands, continue in this manner to end of square and bind off by cutting the yarn and bringing it through the last loop on your needle.
