Afghan project joining squares

I have a bunch of woven squares and was trying to figure out what to do with them. I have decided to combine them into a scrappy throw. I was not sure what would be the best way to join the squares. I tried two different ways..one was sort of a grafting..using a yarn needle and yarn. If the areas are the same yarn and you are using matching yarn this works fine. The other way is to use a crochet hook to sort of do a cast off between the loops. With two loops on the hook move the lower loop over the higher loop then add another loop and repeat. I liked this method the best... Especially since I have a variety of yarns and colors.
