ROUND 1: ch 1, 8 sc in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in first sc. READ CROCHET TIP!
ROUND 2: Switch to medium pink. Ch 6 (= 1 dc + ch 3), * 1 dc in next sc, ch 3 *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 8 dc with ch 3 between each.
ROUND 3: ch 1, then work as follows in every ch-space: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 3 dc, 1 hdc and 1 sc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves.
ROUND 4: Switch to shocking pink. Ch 7, * 1 sc between the next 2 leaves, ch 6 *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times, finish round with 1 sl st in 1st ch from beg of round = 8 ch-spaces.
ROUND 5: ch 1, then work as follows in every ch-space: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 5 dc, 1 hdc and 1 sc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves.
ROUND 6: Ch 10 , * 1 sc between the next 2 leaves, ch 9 *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times, finish round with 1 sl st in 1st ch from beg of round = 8 ch-spaces.
ROUND 7: ch 1, then work as follows in every ch-space: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 5 tr, 1 dc, 1 hdc and 1 sc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves. Cut the yarn and pull it through st on hook.
ROUND 8: Switch to pistachio green and start with 1 sc in first tr on first leaf, ch 3, * ch 8 (= corner), skip 3 tr, 1 dc in last tr on same leaf, ch 5, 1 sc in first tr on next leaf, ch 5, skip 3 tr, 1 sc in last tr on same leaf, ch 5, 1 dc in first tr on next leaf *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times but finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round (instead of 1 dc in 1st tr on next leaf).
ROUND 9: 1 sl st in 8-ch-space, * 4 dc + ch 4 + 4 dc in ch-space in the corner, (ch 4, 1 dc in next ch-space), repeat from (-) a total of 3 times, ch 4 *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, finish with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round.
ROUND 10: Switch to opal green. * 1 dc in each of the first 4 dc, in ch-space in the corner work 3 dc + ch 2 + 3 dc, 1 dc in each of the next 4 dc, 4 dc in next ch-space, 3 dc in next ch-space, 1 dc in the same ch-space but wait with last pull through, make 1 dc in next ch-space but wait with last pull through, pull yarn through both sts. 3 dc in same ch-space, 4 dc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, finish round with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round. There are now 29 dc along each side and 2 ch in every corner. Cut the yarn.

SQUARE 2:
