Every once in a while, you’ll come across instructions that tell you to ‘flatten piece, and attach’. But, what does that mean? Today, I’ll show you step-by-step!
Let’s assume we’ve followed the crochet instructions, and we have a piece (that’s been worked in the round), and we’ve fastened off. The piece will look something like this one:
Now, we need to carry out the instruction ‘flatten piece’. It’s easy! Simply squish the piece closed, leaving your long tail on one side.
Thread the long tail of your piece onto a tapestry needle (mine is shorter than usual for photo purposes!).
Now, we need to do the ‘attach piece’ part. To attach a flattened piece, the key is that you want to go through both layers of your flattened piece.
Run your tapestry needle through both layers of your piece, then through one stitch on your background work (just like you usually attach):
Now, just repeat this last step, until you’ve attached your entire piece! Yay!
