Using worsted weigh yarn and an H hook, 4 rows of Round 3 makes a 6 inch square. To make a square of another size, duplicate Round 3 until square is 1 inch smaller than required, then add HDC row.
I'm a terrible pattern writer--thanks to Fibercat for making a phototutorial to help clear up most questions! But if you have more, just contact me on Ravelry!
Ch 4, connect with SL to form ring;
Round 1: Ch3 (counts as first DC throughout) 12 DC in ring, Connect with SL in top of original Ch3
Round 2: Ch3; FPDC around post as SAME DC in previous round. *DC in top loop of next ST; FPDC in post of next DC in previous round* 2 times (this results in 2 st per DC of 1st round, DC in top loop, FPDC around post) Ch2, DC to make corner . *FPDC in DC; DC in loop 3 times, make corner* 3 times. Connect with sl to 3rd stitch of ch to connect
(12 DC, 12 FPDC, 4 ch2 sp)
Round 3: Ch 3; FPDC around FPDC of previous round, DC in DC. After last FPDC, DC in next loop, ch2 and DC in same ST to make corner. Continue like this around square. Connect with SL in ch3
(20 DC, 12 FPDC, 4 ch2 sp)
Rounds 4-5: Same as Round 3
Round 6: ch2, (counts as first HDC)BACK LOOP ONLY. HDC in back loop only of next 10 stY, HDC in each st of previous round to corner; to make corner, HDC, DC, HDC in ch 2 space. Continue around block in this manner. At last stich, HDC in same ST as SL, HDC, connect with SL.
