When you get to the tip of the ray, make 2 slst into 1 side, but when you turn only make 1 slst into the other side of the stitch. Continue to make 2 slst into the side of all other stitches.

You don’t need to add any extra stitches for the corners.

You should have 78 slst down one long side and 77 down the other, and 20 slst across the bottom.

Weave in your ends, and join the piece to week 20
