CROCHET SQUARE:
Work a crochet square as follows - see diagram A.1:
Work 5 ch with Safran on hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 and form a ring with 1 sl st.
ROUND 1: Work 3 ch (= 1 dc), then work 2 dc in ch-ring, * ch 3, 3 dc in ch-ring *, repeat from *-* 6 more times, ch 3, 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round, 1 sl st in each of the next 3 sts (i.e. 1 sl st in the 2 next dc, 1 sl st in next ch).
ROUND 2: 3 ch (= 1 dc), 2 dc in ch-space, ch 3, 3 dc in same ch-space, * ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 4, 3 dc in ch-space, ch 3, 3 dc in same ch-space *, repeat from *-* (= A.1) 2 more times, ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 4, 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round, 1 sl st in each of the next 3 sts.
ROUND 3: 3 ch (= 1 dc), 2 dc in ch-space, ch 3, 3 dc in same ch-space, * ch 5, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 5, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 5, 3 dc in ch-space, ch 3, 3 dc in same ch-space *, repeat from *-* (= A.1) 2 more times, ch 5, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 5, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 5, 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round, 1 sl st in each of the next 3 sts. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
