Hi, y’all! As you may already know, I made a Vibrant Vintage Blanket recently in shades of green with a cream color background and Border. It took me several tries to figure out what join to use, but I settled on a little experiment I did with a riff on flat braid join.

(Shaky hand at the beginning – I apologize!!)
So the normal flat Braid join has 3- or 5-ch spaces or something like that, but the one I used has only 1 chain for the spaces. So on sides that are joined, the only chain is the joining chain.
You can see this dainty little textured join is just a little something extra to set off the squares without taking anything away. There’s the tiny cable effect which is just perfect. It also absorbs any slight variance in the square size, where a rigid, plain join might pucker or pull.
Anyway, I’m happy with this little join, and fellow FaceBook Crafter, Liz Cooper has shared her lovely work using the 1-ch FBJ in my new FB group the “Tree Huggers” – where you can go and show off your CypressTextiles makes. ❤️❤️
Check out Liz’s WIP! Two thumbs up! 🔥🔥
Hope y’all enjoy this join! 🙂
