R1: Join yarn with a SS into any corner ch space.

SC, ch1, SC in same space to make a corner.

Make the next corner: SC, ch1, SC in same space.

You should have 11 ch spaces across the edge, plus another ch space in each corner (13 total).

Now work down the side of block, inserting your hook into the sides of the rows. Stretch your workpiece slightly to see the stitches clearly. Look closely at the stitches and note how they form a V (2 loops) on every second row. The V is marked in blue below, and the pink dots indicate where to insert your hook to work into these V's.

Now work up the other side of block, inserting your hook into the sides of the rows. Stretch your workpiece slightly again to see the stitches clearly. Look closely at the stitches and this time note how they form a square hole on every second row. Every other row has a V (marked in blue). Work your stitches into the square hole. The square hole is marked in green below, and the purple dots indicate where to insert your hook to work into these holes.
