~ squircle v-4 (used for the tumbling blocks baby blankie) ~


***This pattern is very, very similar to the 'squircle v-3' - this one has less loops on Rnd 3***

Materials:
- 4-ply worsted weight acrylic yarn
- J hook

Size:  3 3/4"

Notes:
- I crochet tight, so you may need to adjust the size of your crochet hook
- the ch 2 at the beginning of Rnds 1 and 2 do not count as a st
- I used the 'flat braid' joining method - the link to that is over on the right sidebar where it says 'joining grannies'.

Directions:
Rnd 1:  Ch 3 (make your 1st ch a little loose), work 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook.  Join with a sl st to 1st dc.  (12 dc)

Rnd 2:  Ch 2, 2 dc in same dc as joining st, 2 dc in each dc around.  Join as before.  (24 dc)

Rnd 3:  Ch 1, sc in same dc as joining st, sc in next dc, ch 3.  *sc in each of next 2 dc, ch 3.  Repeat from * around.  Join with a sl st to 1st sc. 

Rnd 4:  Sl st over to ch-3 loop, (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in same ch-3 loop, 2 dc in next ch-3 loop, ch 1, 2 sc in next ch-3 loop.  *(3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next ch-3 loop, 2 sc in next ch-3 loop, ch 1, 2 sc in next ch-3 loop.  Repeat from * 2 more times.  Join with a sl st to top of beginning ch 3.  End off.
