Hello everyone. This is my first time on this website. I was wondering if anyone could tell me the best way to connect knitted squares for an afaghan. I would like to have a space with a solid color between the blocks. I can crochet too.

Hi and welcome!
You could sc them together or use the mattress stitch, shown under Finishing on the Tips page.

You could also crochet around each one and then crochet them together for a wider border between them.
Be sure to share in What'cha Knittin' when you're done! We'd love to see it!

Crochetcabana.com has tuts on how to join sqs (esp if you framed each knitted sq with a sc or similar).
This thread (http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=77374) has pic of afghan I did with knitted sqs that were framed in sc and then crocheted tog.
