For this project you will need a size 5mm hook or a US size H and three colors of 10 ply / 4 or Medium worsted weight yarn
You will need two skeins of yarn of the main color you choose.
ch = Chain
sl st = Slip Stitch
st = stitch

dc = Double Crochet
*( )* = repeat what is in the brackets til end of row.
For the square, I ch3 then sl st to join, DC 12 in center hole, sl st in begining st to join.
Then change color, add it in a in between sp, and put a popcorn and then ch2 for each sp all around for a total of 12.
Change color, repeat the same for next row.
To make it a square you just choose a ch2 sp and join new color, *dc 3 , next sp dc 3, then next sp you do dc 3 ch2 dc 3 to increase, then repeat from *
then last row you start anywhere where you have 2 dc side by side to be able to do a cross stitch, and do them all around, adding ch2 only when your at a corner.
Last row i just sc all around, 3 sc in corners
First go make the flower then read on below to turn the flower into a square
For Teresa's tutorial on how to make the Marigold Flower see video below. I made it like she does in the tutorial, 10 petals second round, 15 third.
sl st into a ch 7 sp and ch 3, dc 4 times then ch 2 then dc 5 more times in same ch 7 space. Then dc 5, ch 2, dc 5 in next ch 7 space and all around making 4 corners, sl st to join.
