Double crochet (dc) = Treble crochet

The Pattern

For this square you will need a 3.5mm hook

Start by making a foundation chain of 32

Row 1. In the 4th chain from your hook (the turning chain counts as a stitch) make a dc. Dc in each stitch across – 30 stitches

Turn

Row 2. Chain 1 and make the alternate turning chain in the first stitch. Slip stitch (ss) in the next stitch *in the next stitch make a dc, then a ss in the following stitch* repeat between *and* make a dc in each of the last 2 stitches – 30 stitches

Alternate between dc and ss

Turn

Row 3. Chain 1 and make the alternate turning chain in the first stitch. Dc in each stitch across – 30 stitches

Row 4. Chain 1 and make the alternate turning chain in the first stitch. Dc in the next stitch, ss in the next stitch *in the next stitch make a dc, then a ss in the following stitch* repeat between *and* make a dc in the last stitch – 30 stitches

The offset floret stitch

Turn 

Row 5. Chain 1 and make the alternate turning chain in the first stitch. Dc in each stitch across – 30 stitches

Turn

Rows 6 – 19. Repeat rows 2-5

The Border

Along the top and bottom make a sc in each stitch

For the sides Make 2 sc in the side of each dc row and 1 sc in each floret row except for the middle floret row (row 10) where you should make 2sc.

You should have 30 sc down each side, plus an extra stitch in each corner for the turn. This will make your stitch count as 32 stitches across each side and 124 stitches total (remember the extra stitch corner stitch is counted in the stitch count for both sides)

You have now finished your square and join and you can tie off and weave in the ends

You can now add the interlocking border, joining this weeks square to last weeks as you join. You can see how to do this here
