Is it possible?

To join the side of a piece to a top or bottom of another? Would it be strong?

I ask because I’m making a market bag. I’ve only ever knit flat stuff before, and even then I barely know what I’m doing. I taught myself not too long ago (source: some website), and their videos weren’t terribly helpful…and some weren’t even there. Not like this site which has the best videos and explanations - [I]ever[/I]! :mrgreen:

Yes it is possible to join two pieces together, whatever the shape. Of course, there are different techniques of joining. With this being crochet, I generally use the whip stitch, but there’s also a certain way to join the pieces so that it matches.

Do you have a link to the pattern so we can help determine what join would be appropriate?

And here are some links to help you along:

I’ve tried looking for some videos to help you along but no such luck. :frowning:

Awesome, thank you so much! It wasn’t quite what I was looking for but it definitely helps [I]tremendously[/I]. I think I’ll use the slip stitch method in a contrasting color…

No, I don’t have a pattern. I’m still used to reading knitting patterns so to me it looks like a foreign language. :teehee: I’m making this up as I go along. I don’t know what I’m doing, honestly. lol. But I’m having fun and I know I’ll be happy with it whether it turns out crappy or awesome

Go on youtube and look at videos by Teresa. She has fabulous videos. Just type in crochet videos in the search box.
