Square (Make 24)

Flower:  With crochet hook, ch 5.  Join with a sl st to form a ring.

Rnd 1:  Ch 1, work 12 sc’s into ring, join with a sl st in first sc.

Rnd 2:  (Ch 12, sl st in next sc) 11 times, end ch 6, tr in sl st (counts as ch 12).

Rnd 3: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), dc2tog in loop formed by tr on rnd 2 (this is beg loop) , ch 3, (sc in next ch-12 loop, ch 3) twice, * (dc3tog, ch 4, dc3 tog) all in next ch-12 loop (corner made), ch 3, (sc in next ch-12 loop, ch 3) twice, rep from * twice more, 3dctog in beg loop, ch 4, sl in top of beg dc2tog – 4 corners made.

Rnd 4:  Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), dc2 tog in beg loop, ch 3, (sc in next ch-3 space, ch 3) 3 times, * (dc3tog, ch 4, dc3tog) all in ch-4 corner space (corner made), ch 3, (sc in next ch-3 space, ch 3) 3 times, rep from * twice more, dc3tog in beg loop, ch 4, sl st in top of beg dc2tog – 4 corners made.

Rnd 5:  Ch 1, 3 sc in beg space, (3 sc in next ch-3 space) 4 times, * 5 sc in ch-4 space of corner, (3 sc in next ch-3 space) 4 times, rep from * twice more, end 2 sc in beg space, join with a sl st in first sc.

Beg Sides:  (Work back and forth on 2 sides of flower).

Row 1 (RS):  Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), dc in each sc to center sc of next corner, (2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc) all in center sc, dc in next 17 sc’s – 19 dc’s on each of 2 sides with ch-3 space at corner. Turn.

Row 2:  Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), skip first dc, dc in each dc to ch-3 corner space, (dc, ch 3, dc) in ch-3 space, dc in each dc across, dc in top of ch-3 – 20 dc’s on each of 2 sides with ch-3 space at corner.  Turn.  Rep Row 2 eight times more (you will have 1 more dc on each side every row) – 28 dc’s on each side with ch-3 space at corner.  Turn.

Edging:  Rnd 1:  Ch 1, work 2 sc in first dc, sc in each dc to ch-3 space of corner, 5 sc’s in ch-3 corner space (corner made), work 1 sc in each sc to ch-3 at beg of row, work 3 sc’s in top of ch-3 (2nd corner made), working down side of dc rows, (work 1 sc over next edge st, 2 sc’s over next edge st) 5 times;  working around flower, skip joining st, (sc in next 3 sc’s, skip 1 sc) 3 times, sc in next 4 sc, 3 sc’s in next sc (3rd corner made), sc in next 4 sc, (skip 1 sc, sc in next 3 sc) 3 times, skip joining st;  working up side of dc rows, work (2 sc’s over edge st, 1 sc over next edge st) 5 times, end sc in same dc as beg 2 sc’s, join with a sl st in first sc.  Fasten off.

Edging:  With RS facing, using crochet hook, join yarn in any corner,  ch 1.

Rnd 1:  Ch 1, working in back loop only of each st, work 2 sc’s in same st as joining, sc in each sc to seam, * sc in seam, sc in each sc to middle sc of next corner; work (3 sc in corner sc), rep from * around to beg corner, sc in beg sc, join with a sl st in first sc in back loop.

Rnd 2:  Ch 1, 2 sc in same sc of joining, working in back loop only, sc in each sc to middle sc of next corner, * work 3 sc’s in corner sc, sc in each sc to next corner, rep from * around to beg corner, sc in beg sc, join with a sl st in back loop.
