ASSEMBLY
NOTE:
When joining large squares to combined squares made of 4 smaller squares, sew through dcs, ch-2 spaces, and joining of small squares only, skipping all ch 1 spaces on small squares. There will be 29 sts and squares will match up exactly. Also, skip all ch-1 spaces when working Round 1 of border. See Assembly Diagram on next page. Working in back loops only, whip stitch 4 small squares together to form a combined square, placing A square in upper left, D square in upper right, B square in lower right and C square in lower left (see assembly diagram). Repeat with remain - ing 36 small squares, making 10 combined squares total. Working in back loops only, whipstitch all large squares and combined squares together.


BORDER
NOTE:
When working the ch-3 spaces in round 2, make sure to crochet loosely so the sides of the afghan lay flat and do not pull in. It may be helpful to go up a hook size or two if you have trouble working loosely enough.

Round 2: Slip st in next sc, ch 1, *(sc, ch 4, sc) in corner sc, ch 3, skip next 3 sc, [sc in next sc, ch 3, skip next 3 sc] across to center sc of next 3-sc corner; repeat from * around; join with a slip st in first sc—134 ch-3 space; 4 ch-4 corner spaces.
Round 3: Slip st in next ch-4 space, ch 3, (2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in same space, ch 1, *(3 dc, ch 1) in each ch-3 space across to next corner ch-4 space**, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next ch-4 space; repeat from * around, ending last repeat at **; join with a slip st in top of beginning ch-3—426 dc.
