And that’s that  – what you do next is up to fate… or you! The last few rounds of the Fates Square are easily adjustable if you are having trouble getting to 6″ – use shorter sts for Round 7, or drop Round 8 all together if your square is too big, or make Round 8 in dc, or add another round if your square is too small! I hope you enjoy this free 6 inch crochet square pattern!
