Note

This pattern is worked using a ‘corner to corner’ construction in blocks of ch3 and 3 tr. Each ‘row’ is made up of a diagonal row of blocks, starting with 1 block in the bottom left corner, then 2 blocks in the next row, 3 in the next, and so on. When the two straight edges of the square are the right size, the construction changes slightly to work 1 less block on each row, back towards the top right corner. You will need to both turn and rotate the work at the beginning of each new row of blocks.

Pattern: Make 4 squares

Row 1 (RS): Ch6 (counts as 3 ch and tr), tr in fourth ch from the hook and in each of next 2 ch to end, turn. [Block 1]
Row 2 (WS): Ch6 (counts as 3 ch and tr), tr in fourth ch from the hook and in each of next 2 ch [Block 2], with the WS of Block 1 facing, and the RS of Block 2 facing, line up the post of the treble just worked along the top of the trebles from Block 1 so that the 2 blocks are touching and ss in the sp created by the ch-3 at the top of Block 1. Ch3, 3tr in same ch-3 sp, turn. [Blocks 2 and 3 complete]
Row 3 (RS): Ch6 (counts as 3 ch and tr), tr in fourth ch from the hook and in each of next 2 ch [Block 4], rotate this block so that you can ss in the ch-3 sp of Block 3 just worked, ch3, 3tr in same ch-3 sp [Block 5]. Ss in ch-3 sp at the top of the next block [Block 2], ch3, 3tr in same ch-3 sp, turn. [Blocks 4, 5 and 6 complete]
Row 4: Ch6 (counts as 3 ch and tr), tr in fourth ch from the hook and in each of next 2 ch, rotate this block so that you can ss in the ch-3 sp of Block just worked, *ch3, 3tr in same ch-3 sp. Ss in ch-3 sp at the top of the next block; repeat from * untill you have worked a ss into the ch-3 sp of the last block of the previous row, ch3, 3tr in same ch-3 sp, turn. [increase by 1 Block each row]
Row 5-11: Repeat row 4. [11 Blocks after Row 11]

To decrease blocks for the second half of the square:
Row 12: Turn after row 11, next ss in each of the last 3 tr, ss in ch-3 sp of block just worked. *Ch3, 3tr in same ch-3 sp, ss in ch-3 sp of next block; repeat from * until you have worked a ss into the ch-3 sp of the last block of the previous row, turn without working into the top of this block.
Rows 13-21: Repeat row 12.
