COLORS: A – Sunshine (yellow); B – Watermelon (pink); C – Lilac (purple) ; D – Olive (Green); E – Fig (purple); F – Lime (green); G – Rose (pink)

This is how all the squares look in the layout – and how they will be joined together.

INSTRUCTIONS:

THE JOINING:

With color A

 

I used a simple SC joining – working ONLY into the back loops of each DC.
NOTE: I did NOT work into the CLUSTERS.

I joined straight thru – meaning I joined 10 squares in one sitting.
First I joined horizontally – then vertically.

THE BORDER:

With color A

RND 1: Starting at the very FIRST DC of any side (the DC just after a corner CLUSTER);
work 1 SC into starting DC; work 1 SC into next DC; work 1 HDC into next 3 DC;
work 1 DC into next 2 DC; work 1 TR into next 3 DC; work 1 DC into next 2 DC;
work 1 HDC into next 3 DC; work 1 SC into next 2 SC.
This sequence is worked over the 17 STS of a single square.

*SKIP the CLUSTER; work 2 SL ST’s into the JOIN (one on either side)
**work 1 SC into next 2 DC; work 1 HDC into next 3 DC;  work 1 DC into next 2 DC;
work 1 TR into next 3 DC; work 1 DC into next 2 DC; work 1 HDC into next 3 DC;
work 1 SC into next 2 SC.
Repeat from * until next corner reached; CH 4 for the corner.
Starting again at the next FIRST DC of the next side repeat from **.
Join with a SL ST into FIRST SC worked.
Fasten off and weave in ends.

With color E join yarn into ANY 4 CH corner loop

RND 2: CH 3 (counts as 1 DC); work 5 DC into 4 CH loop;
*work 1 SC into NEXT 7 STS; work 1 HDC into next 3 STS (you will note this is worked into the TR sts of the previous round); work 1 SC into NEXT 7 STS; work 1 SL ST into one of the SL ST’s worked int the join of the previous round.
Repeat from * until next 4 CH corner loop; work 6 DC into 4 CH corner loop.**
Repeat from * to ** 3 more times; omitting the instructions for the last corner; SL ST into 3rd of 3 CH.
Fasten off and weave in ends.

With color B join yarn into the FIRST DC of a corner 6 DC group

RND 3: Work 1 SC into first DC; work 1 SC into next DC; work [1 HDC; 1 DC] into next DC; work [1 DC; 1 HDC] into next DC; work 1 SC into next 2 DC;
*work 1 SC into NEXT 7 STS; work [1 SC; 1 HDC] into next HDC; work 2 DC into next HDC; work [1 HDC; 1 SC] into next HDC; work 1 SC into NEXT 7 STS.
SKIP THE SL ST.
Repeat from * until next corner;
work 1 SC into next 2 DC; work [1 HDC; 1 DC] into next DC; work [1 DC; 1 HDC] into next DC; work 1 SC into next 2 DC. **
Repeat from * to ** 3 more times. Omitting last corner instructions; join with a SL ST into first SC worked.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
