Working with a crochet affords the opportunity to "add" a little crochet work to the seams and create more definition and decoration that a sewn seam. Is there a crocheted edge binding all around to "bring this together?

(((((( It depends on how intracate the item is and what it is, etc. Pin together your items to be joined.......

Here's a good video showing the weaving stitch, running stitch, whip stitch and non-traditional safety pin technique; You choose:


When making panels or strips, one can also do this:

Throw ALL five (let's say) panels on at the same time. If a strip is 29 sts wide, 145 stitches would be called for then place STITCH marker every 29th stitch and slip them when returning. Now, you can KNIT the panels together = no seaming required.

I am somewhat new to knitting and would like feedback on the best way to attach pannels for a blanket? What looks the best?

I bought a marvelous book recently. 'Knitting Tips and Trade Secrets Expanded', Taunton Press, 2006, has more than one answer to this question. I have read most of the 183 pp.! I won't remember it all, but it will be a fine reference for me for a long time.

Thank you for the quick answers. Yes, I have done the crochet borders and then stiched them together and I have also done the matress stitch but it leaves a seam on the back that I don't like on a blanket. I am trying to do a simple 4 panel blanket (Im not following any pattern..lol just trying it on my own...hahaha) and was looking for the best way to put them together. This is a great site and my first post on this site. Thanks again and I look forward to hopefully posting a picture of the finished blanket :)

Here is some of the different edging, but the one that is knit with the bobble edging is the one I did with the matress seam and yea it looks nice on one side but I didn't like the seam on the other.
