Pattern Notes

I will be using a few standing stitches in this pattern. Crystals and Crochet have a great tutorial about standing stitches you can find at http://www.crystalsandcrochet.com/crochet/starting-and-standing-stitches/

Each corner is made up of 3 or 5 stitches, You will work 1 or 2 stitches in a stitch then a front post stitch around that same stitch, then 1 or 2 more stitches in the same st. Pictures will be at the end of the pattern.
