• Crochet base chain loosely so that the edge does not curl.
• Place stitch markers on edge stitches and move them up as you go along to keep edges even. (Optional)
• Beginning chs of rows do not count as sts.
• For a wider square, adjust base chain by adding sts in multiples of 6. Learn more about crochet stitch multiples at A wider square will require more yarn.
• For a longer or shorter square, add additional rows by repeating row 3.
