Project Note: You will use the size I/9 hook from the set. The number of Skeins needed to complete this project is   
   · 1 - Red Heart® Super Saver® Yarn, Solid – Soft Navy
   · 2 - Red Heart® Super Saver® Yarn, Solid – Turquoise
   · 2 - Red Heart® Super Saver® Yarn, Solid – Buff

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS:  44" x 56" (including edging)

GAUGE: 6 blocks = 4" ; 6 rows = 4" in stitch pattern. Exact gauge is not critical for this project
 

NOTES: 
Change color on an increase row as follows: Work last dc until 2 loops remain on hook, cut old color, yo with new color to complete dc, continue with new color.

Change color on a decrease row as follows: Do not ch 6, turn, slip st in first 3 dc, insert hook in ch-3 space of same block, yo with new color, complete slip st with new color and continue with new color.
 

INSTRUCTIONS:

Shape First Corner: With A, ch 6.

Row 1 (Right Side): Dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch; turn – 1 corner block made.

Row 2: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch (beginning block made), (slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in ch-3 space of previous row (block made); turn – 2 blocks.

Row 3: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, [(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row] twice; turn – 3 blocks.

Row 4: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, [(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row] 3 times changing to B in last dc; turn – 4 blocks.
 
Continue in this manner, increasing 1 block at beginning of each row until there are 48 blocks across. At the same time, work Stripe pattern as follows: 6 rows B, 6 rows C, 6 rows D, 2 rows A. Repeat these 20 rows throughout for stripe pattern.  
Step 2
Shape Second Corner
 
Note: Mark beginning edge as width of piece. You will be decreasing 1 block at beginning of one row and increasing 1 block at beginning of next row to maintain the same number of blocks across. Follow Notes for changing colors.
 
Decrease Row 1: Slip st across first 3 dc to ch-3 space of second block of previous row, [(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row] to end of row; turn – 48 blocks.
 
Increase Row 2: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, [(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row] to last block, slip st in ch-3 space of last block; turn – 48 blocks.
Keeping in Stripe pattern, repeat last 2 rows until piece measures 43" [109 cm] along marked edge and 55" [140 cm] along unmarked edge.
 
Shape Third Corner
Keeping in Stripe pattern, repeat Decrease Row 1 every row, decreasing 1 block at beginning of every row until 1 block remains on last row for last corner.
 
Fasten off.
 
Finishing: Edging Round: With right side facing, join A in any ch-3 space, ch 3, 4 dc in same space, *[sc in center dc of next block, 5 dc in next ch-3 space] to corner; work 6 dc in corner space; repeat from * around to beginning edge, [sc in center dc of next block, 5 dc in next ch-3 space] to first st, join with a slip st in top of beginning ch-3. Fasten off.
 
Weave in ends.
