A big thanks to Frances for letting me know that I failed to mention that
the loops need to be twisted when removed from the needle.
Hook: Size G & Broomstick or Large Knitting Needle
Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver
Stitches used: ch, sl st, sc, hdc.
Difficulty: MEDIUM (I've added illustrations after certain steps to help you with this pattern)
ROW 1: Ch 21, hdc in 3rd ch from hk and in each ch across. Ch 1, turn.
ROW 2: Draw the ch 1 lp up and over the broomstick (hook empty). * Insert hk into next st and draw up a lp and place it over the broomstick. Rep from * across. (20 lps). (See Illustration 1)
ROW 3: Slide 4 lps off of the broomstick.
Twist the loops so you can work into them... always twist the groups of loops in the same direction.
Working into the lps, yo and draw up a lp, ch 2 (counts as 1st hdc). Work 3 more hdc in the same sp. (See Illustration 2) * Slide off 4 more lps from the broomstick and work 4 hdc into the lps. Rep from * across. (See Illustration 3). Ch 1, turn.
ROW 4: Rep Row 2.
ROW 5: Rep Row 3.
ROW 6: Rep Row 2.
ROW 7: Rep Row 3.
Row 8: Rep Row 2.
Row 9: Rep Row 3, except ch 2 and turn.
ROW 10: Hdc in each hdc. Ch 1, turn.
RND 1: Sc in each hdc across to corner. (Sc, ch 1, sc, ch 1, sc) in the corner. Working down the side, evenly space 18 sc. (I placed 3 around the ends of the broomstick loops and one in the ends of some of the rows) Work corner same as before. Sc in each st across bottom. Evenly space 18 sc up the other side being sure to end with the corner stitch sequence. NOTE: If your tension causes the square to pucker up down the side when you do this step all you need to do is add extra stitches.
RND 2: Hdc in each st. (Hdc, ch 1, hdc, ch 1, hdc) in each corner sp. Join with a sl st to the top of the first hdc.
