There was a post showing how to knit pieces together without sewing them. It produced a lovely narrow column between the pieces, kind of like a "window frame" effect.

I have searched every way I can think of to find this post. It was relatively recent, probably this year.

I have a blanket with five columns all knitted and want to use this technique to join the columns.

Does anyone remember the post I'm referring to?

Is it the Bickford technique?

Thank you for your reply, but it wasn't bickford or mattress stitch.
tmvasquez - I really like the crochet stitch join that you suggested. It will make a lovely, flat join that adds beautiful columns to my blanket. I'm going to try it today. My blanket is going to be much prettier than I expected, and it looks easy to do. Thanks a lot!

I’m glad I could help. Please show us the finished project. I’d love to see how it turned out.

I will post a picture for sure. It will be my first one. I've made the swatches and I'm just now starting to practice the new join. I love this!

I have been looking for a good way to join some squares I was given and I like what I see on this video but I would need better instructions. This is the first time on KP that I have been confronted with a language that I cannot even guess what it is. I feel so ignorant. MN

I don't know what language is on the video either. But I think I have it figured out. I'm joining blanket panels instead of squares, but the process should be the same.

After a couple practice runs on my swatches, I decided that what I needed was to add slip stitches along the side edge of each panel first. Knitted edges are a bit messy and this gave me a nice edge to work with. I was careful to add the same number of slip stitches to each panel edge.

Then I followed the crochet join as demonstrated in the video. The join looks nice and is fairly flat. I like it a lot.

Slip stitch through both legs of the 1st slip stitch on the bottom edge of the left panel, ch1, then slip stitch through both legs of the 1st slip stitch on the bottom edge of the right panel, ch1. It looks neater if you snug up each stitch as you go. Repeat slip st, ch1 on left panel edge, then slip st ch1 on right panel edge, continuing up until the panels are joined.

I'll post a picture after I get my blanket panels joined. I hope this helps someone.
