Notes

This square is made of 3 pieces. You will sew 2 tear drops onto a 9 inch square that you will have worked flat.

The tear drops are written in a way that made sense to me when I have to work on both sides of a chain.

Directions

Tear Drops – Make Two

With CB ch10, 11tr in 5th ch from hook the 4 ch you skipped makes a tr makes bottom of tear drop
2htr in next ch
2dc in next ch
2hdc in next ch
sc in next ch
sl st, ch3, sl st in next ch
makes top of tear drop
sc in next ch You will be working on other side of chain from now on.
2hdc in next ch
2 dc in next ch
2htr in next ch
join to the top of ch5
which is part of the original ch10

Square – Make One

The 26th ch at the beginnig DOES NOT count as a stitch it is there for turning purposes.
The ch1 when turning DOES NOT count as a st.

Body of Square

To Start: With CA ch26, turn

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 24 chs. Ch1, turn

Row 2: sc in next 25 sts, ch1, turn Make sure your width is 7 ½ inches wide before continuing.

Row 3-31: repeat row 2. You may need less or more then 31 rows. You want the square to be 7 ½ inches tall. Mark the 1st & last ch worked in as well as 1st & last st of last row worked. These are the corners

Border of Square

There is no right or wrong side until you get to this point. The side that is facing you when you start is the right side from this point on. Rounds 1-3 will be worked with the right side facing you at all times.

Attaching Tear Drops
With a tapestry needle use CB to sew tear drops where you want on the right side of the work. I placed mine in the bottom right hand corner of the square.
