Making the Granny Squares
ch 4 and sl st in beg st.
Ch 3, work two more dc’s inside the ring, *(ch 2, then work 3 more dc’s into the ring)* repeat this 2 more times. After the last set of 3 dc’s, only ch 1 instead of 2 and sl st into top of beginning ch 3. This sl st counts as second chain. This is why you only chained one at end or row. You should have you 4 spaces.
Ch 3, work two more dc’s into this corner space. (ch 2 and working in the next corner space put DC 3, ch 2, DC 3 all worked in the same space. ) repeat 2 more times, which brings you up to your beginning corner. DC into this last space ch 1 and sl st into beginning ch 3.
Ch 3, work two more dc’s into this corner space. (Ch 1 and dc 3 into middle space, ch 1 and working in next corner DC 3. ch 2. DC 3. ) repeat 2 more times, which brings you up to your beginning corner. DC into this last space ch 1 and sl st into beginning ch 3.
Round 4 and every round after wards will be done exactly like round three, every round you will be increasing how many center spaces you will have between each corner space. Just keep working them like you did in round three.
