This is my original pattern for a 12 inch square that I call All Around the Mulberry Bush or All Around for short.
All Around the Mulberry Bush 12 inch Sq. by Anne Fatato Sept 2004
I do not have a gauge other than when finished you should have a square that is 12 inches all around when this is worked to 10 rounds.
This square uses two contrasting or complimentary colors of ww yarns & an H hook.
Working with color A chain 4 join with a sl st to form a ring. Ch 3, 2 dc (in ring now & for rest of round one); ch 2; 3 dc; ch 2; 3 dc; ch 2 & draw up a loop, join color B through the second chain st just made & work 3dc; ch 2 join with sl st to top of beginning ch 3 of color A.
ch 3, working in same corner space work 2 dc; work 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc in next corner space; 3dc, ch 2, 3 dc in next corner space- leave off CB ... picking up CA - Ch 3, working in same corner space (should cover color join) work 2 dc, complete next corner sp by working 3 dc, ch 2, join w/ sl st to top of ch 3 of CB... go back to CB to complete round 2 . wk 3 dc in corner sp & ch2, join w/sl st to top of beginning ch 3 of CA.
