Repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, and finish with ch 1 and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 8 dc-groups and 8 ch-spaces.
ROUND 3: Work sl st until next ch-space, ch 3, 2 dc in ch-space, ch 3 and 3 dc in same ch-space (= 1st corner), * ch 1 and 3 dc in next ch-space, ch 1 and 3 dc, ch 3 and 3 dc in next ch-space (= next corner) *.
