Stitch 197 for a cause

I posted before about the uKNITe project of the Philadelphia Bar Association. Instead of everyone creating scarfs and such, it was suggested that we make squares that one of the participants will stitch together into a large blanket. Here is my first contribution:

Started with chunky yarn – Bernat Softee Baby chunky yarn to be exact – Indigo is the color- and an L hook.

Here is some of the yarn:

I need to make approximately a 12 inch square. So I ch 38 to start off.

Row 1: sc in each st (37 st)

Row 2: ch1, sc in 1st sc, *skip 2sc (dc, ch1, dc, ch1, dc, ch1, dc, ch1, dc) that a fan of 5dc with ch1 b/w each dc. Sk 2dc, sc in next sc, repeat from * to end ending with sc. Turn.

Row 3: Ch5 (counts as dc, ch2), skip all the st until you get to the 2nd ch1 space, sc in that st, ch1, sc in the next ch1 space. , *ch2, dc in sc, ch 2, skip  first ch1 space in fan, sc in next ch1, ch1, sc in next ch1 space* repeat from *  you will end with a ch2 followed by a dc in the final stitch of the row. Turn.

Row 4: Ch 1, sc in first dc, *skip the ch-2 space, Make the same 5dc fan that you did in Row 2, which is (dc, ch1, dc, ch1, dc, ch1, dc, ch1, dc) in the ch1 space (so you skipped the sc), skip the next ch-2 space, , sc in the next dc, repeat from * across (it will look like row 2) ending with a sc in the 3rd ch of the turning chain, Turn.

Rows 5-21: Repeat rows 3 and 4 until the piece is 12 inches high.

Row 22: ch 1, sc in initial dc, 2 sc in the ch-2 space, sc in each ch 1 space and/or sc so that you have a complete row of sc across.

Fasten Off.

Here is the final product:

This will be added to a larger piece.
