Note: This stitch is great for making squares with designs in the middle. Most times it is easier to work with 2 skeins of each color once design starts. Use graph paper to draw out design before starting. Make sure you leave ends to weave in and secure. (see below)
This pattern starts at bottom right and works up to top left of square.
Row 1:Chain (ch) 6, double crochet (dc) into 4th ch from hook. Dc into each of the next 2 ch.
Row 2:Ch 6, dc into 4th ch from hook. Dc into each of next 2 ch. Turn “square” to other side and connect to Row 1 using a slip stitch (ss) into ch 3 space. Ch 2, work 3 dc into chain space (ch sp) you just connected to.
(You should now have a small triangle)
Row 3:Ch 6, dc into 4th ch from hook. Dc into each of next 2 ch. Turn “triangle” to other side and connect to previous row, using a ss into ch 3 space. Ch 2, work 3 dc into ch sp you just connected to. * Ss into next ch 3 sp, ch 2 and work 3 dc into ch sp you just connected to.* Continue across row from * to *.
Repeat Row 3 until "square" reaches size you have patterned. Once you reach the top right corner you will start decreasing your C2C square. This means you will work across the top of your square to start the next stitch.
**Join last tile with a ss, ch 1, turn, work 1 ss into each of next 2 stitches (st) across the top of last dc created. Continue with * to * of Row 3.** As each row decreases you will be following ** to ** until square is complete.
You will now have ends to weave in. Using embroidery needle, weave ends through the bottom of the 3 dc cluster. Pass back and forth a few times to secure.
