materials:

any size hook

notes:

this square is basically made the same as a single color granny square, but with a color change in the 1st and 3rd corners. this change is made in the last yarn over of the 3rd double crochet in the corner.

beginning chain-3 of each round counts as double crochet

special instructions:

to work corner: (3 double crochet, chain 1, 3 double crochet) in chain-1 space
to work 1st change corner: (3 double crochet -- in last double crochet join new color and pull it up for last yarn over of stitch, chain 1, 3 double crochet) in chain-1 space
to work 2nd change corner: (3 double crochet -- changing back to first color in last yarn over of 3rd stitch, chain 1, 3 double crochet) in chain-1 space

pattern:

chain 7-10 (if your chain tends to be tight, chain 10)
