There are many ways to seam a blanket…
This tutorial explains the slip stitch crochet seam, which I used to sew up the the Dogwood and POP blankets.
SLIP STITCH CROCHET SEAM
Note: I have used a contrast-colour yarn in this tutorial for clarity – in the projects, I use the same yarn as the rest of the blanket.
To work a slip stitch crochet seam, place the pieces of work together. I have placed them wrong sides together and will work the seam from the right side of the work to create an exposed selvedge on the right side of the work.
Insert the hook through both pieces, from front to back. Yarn is held at the back. Use crochet hook to draw a loop up to the front of the work. *Insert the hook through both pieces again, and draw a new loop through the work and also through the loop already on the hook. Repeat from * until you reach the end of the seam.
