Squares are joined into 10 rows of 8 squares each. To join, hold two
squares with right sides facing; sl st squares together loosely with black,
inserting the hook into the back loops only of each square.
Join each row of squares first; tie a number on each finished row so that
you don’t get them mixed up later when joining row to row. Join squares
in each row as follows (left to right):
Row 1: 8 Rose
Row 2: 8 Blue
Row 3: 1 Blue, 6 Green, 1 Blue
Row 4: 1 Blue, 1 Green, 4 Gold, 1 Green, 1 Blue
Row 5: 1 Blue, 1 Green, 1 Gold, 2 Rose, 1 Gold, 1 Gold, 1 Green, 1 Blue
Row 6: Same as Row 5.
Row 7: Same as Row 4.
Row 8: Same as Row 3.
Row 9: Same as Row 2.
Row 10: Same as Row 1.
Now join the strips, sl stitching each strip to the one below, again with
right sides facing and working into back loop of each stitch; carefully
match stitches as you work and work a ch-1 between each square (this
keeps work flat). Weave in all loose back ends, running the ends into
the seam of the next square, rather than back into the square itself.
Join Black with a sl st into any outer corner ch-3 sp; work as for rnd 3
square; work one more rnd in black; finish off, weave in ends.
