Blocking Squares

It is recommended that you block each square and triangle before you attach them. Pin each motif to an even shape and spray with water (or hover a steam iron over each piece) and leave to dry. It will make attaching them later much easier.

granny square placement

Assemble!

Lay-out your squares and triangles following placement in picture below. Holding RS of motifs together, you will now join your motifs in back loop only by sewing (whip stitching) together.

Try to make your stitches loosely to avoid the piece puckering and join your motifs as evenly as you can. Pin out your finished piece and steam block lightly.

Border and Ties

Join MC in top left corner of your finished triangle. Ch 40, (you can add more chains to make your ties longer) 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across (39 sc). Sl st back to main piece.

Make a sc in each dc and ch-1 sp down the side of piece, making 1 sc in space between each motif. Make (2 sc, ch 1, 2 sc) in the ch-3 sp at bottom peak of triangle.

Working up the other side to top right corner, make a sc in each dc and ch-1 sp, making 1 sc in space between each motif.

When you reach right corner, ch 40,1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across (39 sc). Sl st back to main piece.

Working across top of bandana, make 3 sc in each row end of each triangle, 1 sc in each beg ch 5 and 1 sc in space between each motif. Join with a sl st to beg ch and weave in all ends.
