This pattern features a special stitch, so be sure to look for the definition for that in the instructions. The pattern is very well written and easy to follow – and I love the mix of stitches here!
My square was coming out just a hair small, so I changed the final round to hdc instead of sc – and that got me to 12″. 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 1-2: Hot Pink; Rnd 3: Tigerlily; Rnd 4-5: Lettuce; 6: Iced Aqua; Rnd 7: Holly Berry; Rnd 8: Hot Pink; Rnd 9: Tigerlily; Rnd 10-12: Lettuce; Rnd 13: Iced Aqua; Rnd 14-15: Holly Berry; Rnd 16: Fruit Punch.
