Start the last round of the square and work until you get to the first corner that needs to be joined. Make the first ch of the corner as normal, to make the second ch, first insert the hook from front to back into the corner ch that is being connected to, then make the chain by yarning over, and pulling through everything on the needle.
Now complete the next 3 dc. Connect the next ch stitch, by first inserting the hook from front to back in the chain space that is being joined into, then make the chain in the same manner as before. Continue joining side in this manner until next corner is reached. Join first ch of next corner to finish off.
When joining squares, if the first side of the round is joined, the last chain of the starting ch-5 is joined to the first corner/space the square is being joined to.

Getting Started: 

  • Round/Row counts are at the end of each row after the period, if the count has changed from the previous round. – {count here}
  • Chs and sl sts are not included in Round/Row counts unless specified.
