Hi,
I was wondering if you could clarify Round 5. You say to repeat to the *, but there is no beginning *. Do you mean just to repeat Round 5???

THANKS!

Sherry Jackson said...

In Round 5 at the asterisk, do you mean to REPEAT ROUND 5 ONCE?

Hi Sherry, man this is one my designs that definitely needs a rewrite. Here try this and see if this helps.

Rnd 5: Slst in ch2sp & work a ch3, dc, ch2, 2dc. (Beg Corner made). [Dc in next st, pick up the ch12 wing and complete dc in next st, dc in next st. Pick up the ch10 wing and complete a dc in next st, dc in 6sts. Pick up left ch10 wing and complete a dc in next st, dc in next st. Pick up ch12 wing and complete a dc in next st, dc in next st. IN next ch2sp work a corner of 2dc, ch2, 2dc. Dc in next 15sts. (includes dc, and ch1sps) work corner in ch2sp]2x. Omitting last corner, join in top of beg ch3.

I have been crocheting for 40 years and don't know what an SS stitch is. I will look it up and then try this delightful square. I love dragonflies.
