My Notes: Don't get intimidated by this queen! There's a lot going on in this square, but the result is worth it - just take it a step at a time. Be sure to read the instructions carefully. Each round includes the instructions for starting with a new color or continuing with the previous color, so you have lots of options built-in!
Helpful Links and Tutorials: Magic Circle; Chainless Starting Double Crochet in the Magic Circle; Standing Double Crochet; Standing Half Double Crochet; Standing Single Crochet; Post Stitches; Popcorn Stitch; and Seamless Finishing.
Sizing: I got to 12" by following the pattern as written. However, everyone's gauge and tension levels 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.

This square required moderate blocking. I used the wet blocking method, or you could use a light steam.
