NEW!!!! For Afghans
Follow instruction for above square, EXCEPT in the cornes work (2dc, ch 2, 2dc) Then on the last round work dc instead of sc with the (2 dc, ch2, 2 dc)in the corners. This will bring your corners to more of a square!!!
You can also work the dc's instead of the sc. This will bring the pattern more to a true 6" square.
