Slip stitch to the 3rd chain as you did on the 1st and 2nd rounds.

You have now completed your 3rd round.

Round 3, Step 7
Continue working in this way, turn your work after each round, work 3 tr in the space between groups of tr along the side and (3 tr, 1 ch, 3 tr) in each chsp on the corners.

Each round you work will have one extra space on each side.

You may find it helpful to mark the 1st 3 chain of each row so you don't work past it.

You could also mark the corners to distinguish them from the sides and to remember to work (3tr, 1ch, 3tr) in each of them.

Why do I turn my work after each row?

1. I was taught to do it this way as a child.

2. It makes the square reversible, there is no right or wrong side.

3. The work turns out straighter. Working the same way all the time makes the square a little wonky.

Make a square without turning and look at the difference.
