For this square you will need a 4mm hook
Start by making a foundation chain of 32
The turning chain counts as your first dc plus one chain which will count as a skipped stitch.
Row 1. Dc in the 5th chain from your hook, chain 1 then make a dc in the same stitch as the first dc (this forms your first V stitch). Skip 2 stitches and make your second v stitch (dc, chain 1, dc – all in 1 stitch). *Skip 2 chains, v stitch* repeat this across the chain until you have 3 stitches left. Skip 1 stitch and dc in the last 2 stitches. (30 Stitches in the row)
Row 2. Turning chain in the top of the first dc, dc in next stitch. V stitch into the chain space of the v stitch below in row 1. V stitch into every chain space in the row. ( 9 V stitches in total) Dc in last stitch
Row 3. Turning chain in first stitch. V stitch in every chain space. Dc in last 2 stitches.
Rows 4-13. Repeat rows 2 and 3. End with a repeat of row 3. There should be 9 V stitches in each row and 30 stitches in total
For the top and bottom sc in the post of the V and 2 sc in the gap of each V. For the edges make 3 sc in the side of rows 1, 4, 9 and 13, 2 sc in the side of all other rows.
You should have 30 sc down each side, plus an extra stitch in each corner for the turn. This will make your stitch count as 32 stitches across each side and 124 stitches total (remember the extra stitch corner stitch is counted in the stitch count for both sides)
You have now finished your square and join and you can tie off and weave in the ends
You can now add the interlocking border, joining this weeks square to last weeks as you join. You can see how to do this here
