Pineapple Sun Square
Pattern Designed by: Aurora Suominen, Cherie, Ivory Herman, Judy Westen, and Paula Milburn Copyright © 2010

6” Square with a “G” Hook and WW yarn
Chain 4 and join to form a ring.

Rnd 1: Ch3 and work 15DC in ring. Join. (16dc)

Rnd 2: Ch3, 3 dc in same st, *ch 3, skip 3 sts, 4 dc* 3 times, ch 3, join to top of ch 3. (16dc, 4 ch3 spaces)

Rnd 3: Ch4 (counts as 1dc & ch1), 1DC, Ch1 in next 3sts. *+Ch2, in the 2nd st of next ch3, work 3dc cluster, ch2, 3dc cluster. Ch2, +. 1DC, ch1 in next 4sts.** work from *to** 2 more times, then +to+ once more. Ch2 and join to beginning ch3.

*note* When I joined in rounds 4 and 5 I joined as if I was doing a fpdc, since that st should have one in it anyway, so instead of joining in the top of the chain 3, I joined using a fpsc instead. I think it looks better. Let me know if you try this.

Row 4: CH3, BPDC in next 2dc , FPDC in next dc, CH2, in corner space (ch sp between the clusters) do 2DC, CH2, 2DC. Skip dc cluster and ch2 space. CH2 *FPDC in next dc, BPDC in next 2dc, FPDC, CH2, in corner do 2DC, CH2, 2DC*. Repeat *-* 3x, CH2, join to BEG CH3. (32DC including CH3 at BEG. 4 CH2 spots.)

Round 5: Ch 3 (counts as dc), BPDC in next 2dc, FPDC in next dc, Ch2, in next 2-ch space do 2dc, Ch2. In corner do 2dc, Ch2, 2dc. Ch2 in next 2-ch space do 2dc. *Ch2, FPDC in next dc, BPDC in next 2 dc, FPDC, Ch2, 2DC in next ch2 space. In corner do 2dc, Ch2, 2dc* Repeat from * to* 3 times, Ch2 and join to top of beginning Ch3. (48 dc, 20 Ch-2 spaces)

Round 6: SC in each st and ch space around, working 3 SC in each corner space.
