Anna’s Stories-Layout, Joining and Border

Here are the blocks by Whirl shades, marked with letters:

1. Sherbet Rainbow Whirl (768) started from the inside:


2. Cotton Candy Man Whirl (760) started from the outside:


3. Jumpin Jelly Whirl (759) started from the outside:


4. Popin Candy Whirl (762) started from the inside:


Using the picture below as a guide, lay the squares in order, 3 squares horizontally and 4 squares vertically:


Join squares vertically then horizontally on RS by working from the top throughout, *1 SC in CH 2 corner SP of bottom square (Pic 1), CH 2, 1 SC in CH 2 corner SP of the opposite square on top (Pic 2-3), CH 2, SK 2 STS on the opposite square, {1 SC in bottom square (Pic 4), CH 2, SK 2 STS, 1 SC in top square, CH 2, SK 2 STS (Pic 5-6)}  25 times, 1 SC in  CH 2 corner SP of bottom square (Pic 7), CH 2, 1 SC in CH 2 corner SP of top square (Pic 8), CH 2, get your next bottom square, 1 SC in CH 2 corner SP of that square (Pic 9), CH 2, get your next top square, 1 SC in CH 2 corner SP of that square (Pic 10-11)* repeat from *to* as many times as needed to join all squares vertically, omitting last instruction of getting your next squares at the end of each row of joining.

Extra help: You can watch a short, slow motion video of the steps above if you are more visual, here:

(Note: make sure, do not twist the joining of the squares after the first vertical join. To prevent it from happening, you can join your squares together through the corners on the side with a stitch marker to keep them in place)

When joining the squares horizontally, repeat the instructions above. When you get to the corners of the squares, do everyting as you did before, making sure your horizontal joining chains are above the vertical joining. (Pic 12-16) (Note: horizontal joining marked with red arrows, vertical is marked with green on Pic 16)

Extra help: You can watch a short, slow motion video of this join if you are more visual, here:

Fasten off after each completed join and weave in all ends.
