The square is worked from side to side, giving the finished piece a faux-knit ‘rib’ effect. To get this effect, you need to work in the loop in front of the front loop of the stitch (ffl) on the WS of the work, and the loop behind the back loop (bbl) on the RS of the work.
Pattern: Make 4 squares
Row 1 (RS): Htr in third ch from hook and in each ch to end, turn. [28 sts]
Row 2 (WS): Ch2 (does not count as st), htr into each ffl to end, turn.
Row 3 (RS): Ch2 (does not count as st), htr into each bbl to end, turn.
Rows 4-21: Repeat (rows 2 and 3) 9 more times, at the end of row 21: do not turn and do not fasten off.
Round 1 (RS): Ch1 (does not count as st), work 26 dc evenly along each side of the square, with 3dc in each corner, ss to first dc. Fasten off, weave in ends, add contrast thread and block.
* Turn the finished square by 90 degrees so that the ‘knitted rib’ effect runs in vertical lines.
