DRESS:
First work the squares – they are gradually worked tog. Then work along one side of squares and up the skirt and then the top. Finally work flounce along the other side of squares and down, and ruffles around armholes.

SQUARE 1:
Also see diagram A.1.
Ch 4 on hook size 3 mm / C with Safran and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: ch 3 (= 1 dc), work 11 dc in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 2: ch 2, 1 sc in next dc, 1 ch * 1 sc in next dc, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round.
ROUND 3: ch 1, 1 sc in 2nd ch from previous round, * ch 4, 1 sc in next ch from previous round *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round = 12 ch-spaces.
ROUND 4: ch 2, 1 sc in first ch-space, * ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, 8 ch (= corner), 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round, but finish with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round (instead of 1 sc in next ch-space). Cut the yarn.

SQUARE 2:
Work as SQUARE 1 from 1st to 3rd round.
ROUND 4: Also see diagram A.1.
Work as follows: ch 2, 1 sc in first ch-space, ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 4, place the square WS against WS with SQUARE 1, work 1 sc in one of the large ch-spaces on SQUARE 1 (= corner), ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space on SQUARE 2, * ch 2, 1 sc in next small ch-space on SQUARE 1, ch 2, 1 sc in next ch-space on SQUARE 2 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, ch 4, 1 sc in next large ch-space on SQUARE 1 (= corner), ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space on SQUARE 2. Then work around SQUARE 2 as follows: ** ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 8, 1 sc in next ch-space **, repeat from **-** 1 more time but finish with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round. Cut the yarn.

Then work SQUARE 2 until a total of 22-24-26-28-30-32 squares have been worked. The last square is worked tog with both the next to last and the first square so that the squares form a circle.
