I inherited some yarn. There were many long knitted strips. I would like to weave them together. How would you do that? I thought about doing a crochet edge or an I-cord at the top and then around the other edges after they are woven together but the edge of the first woven strip would be loose. Or maybe weave them together and fasten them together at the middle of each block, or at the corners somehow. Not sure what to fasten them with. TIA.

Would you be able to take a picture of them, or some of them? Measurements might help too. That would probably help people think about what might work best.

Sorry, can't do pictures, no camera, and flip phone stopped taking pictures years ago. Just take some strips of paper, and weave them together. That might give you an idea of what I am talking about.

I think you will still have to secure each strip to the strip that passes it in order for the strips to stay in a woven pattern. Perhaps just tacking the middle of each square like a quilt would work. I would tack and edge in the same color.

Fasten with scraps of yarn, the way some home-made quilts used to be 'quilted', instead of sewing the top to the bottom through the batting. This crocheted pattern actually does what you described: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/woven-in-time-blanket. If you can access Dropbox, this link should allow you to see the directions for the assembly/weaving and border: https://www.dropbox.com/s/56hzblg1vimu0qh/3%20Part%20THREE.pdf?dl=0

Thanks everybody and Jessica-Jean. You always have the answer I need. I'm not crazy about the "yarn tuffs", but might come up with something else. Now I know how to connect the top edge and weave them together.

I'm not keen on knots; I do not trust them to never come undone. I suppose one could just sew through the strips at the intersections; not a task I'd cotton to. That's probably why I haven't begun that pattern, though I did collect its parts.
