This pattern is very unique – be sure to read all the instructions carefully! Though it is worked from the outside in, you will go back to the outside for the last few rounds, so don’t worry if that first round you make seems small.
My square was coming out just a tiny bit big, so I reduced the last round from hdc to sc, and that did the trick! But everyone’s gauge and tension level are different so be sure to measure as you go, and check your gauge. Learn how to adjust for size HERE to make sure all your squares are the same size. Remember that the 12″ is measured across and up and down – not diagonally corner to corner.
I used a Furls US-J, 6.0 mm hook and Red Heart With Love, and my color scheme was as follows – Rnd 1: Lettuce; Rnd 2: Iced Aqua; Rnd 3: Lettuce; Rnd 4: Holly Berry; Rnd 5: Lettuce; Rnd 6: Hot Pink; Rnd 7: Lettuce; Rnd 8: Tigerlily; Rnd 9: Lettuce; Rnd 10: Hot Pink; Center Flower: Holly Berry; E1 and E2: Lettuce; E3: Fruit Punch.
