My Notes: This pattern features the linked treble crochet stitch - this unique stitch is like a mini version of Tunisian crochet, but don't be intimidated if this is new to you! Be sure to check out the video tutorial I've linked below for this stitch before you begin. Also, be sure you read the pattern notes before you start crocheting, and measure the width after you crochet the first few rows so you can reduce the number of stitches if it's coming out too big.
Sizing: My square came right to 12" as written. But everyone's gauge and tension level are different so be sure to measure as you go. 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.
What I Did: I used a Furls US-J, 6.0 mm hook and Red Heart With Love, and my color scheme was as follows: Row 1: Navy; Row 2: Bluebell; Row 3: True Blue; Row 4: Navy; Row 5: Bluebell; Row 6: True Blue; Row 7: Navy; Row 8: Bluebell; Row 9: True Blue; Row 10: Navy; Row 11: Bluebell; Row 12: True Blue; Row 13: Navy; Border Rnd 1: Navy; Border Rnds 2 and 3: White.
