Square 4 -- Snowflake Square

This square took a little time to get it to the right size. 
I started off with a circle this time.
I borrowed the center of the circle from DragonFlyMomof2 Designs Snowfall Square.

My instructions probably aren't very clear and I apologize for that in advance.
I'm writing them out in my own way mainly for me to go back and make more squares for another afghan, but I will be more than happy to try to help you understand my way of writing if you are interested in making some of these squares. 
 Just leave a comment or email me.
I followed Dragon Fly Mom of 2 Designs for row 1-7 except I changed colors for row 7.  I also use an H hook.

Here's where I started making my own changes.


Row 8:  To make the corners you need to make 2 DC in any SC that is at the top of the point of one of the snowflakes tips then ch 2, 2 DC and then 1 DC in the next 19 SC of previous row.  Then make next corner with 2 DC, ch 2, 2 DC in each corner and continue with the 19 DC and then repeat corners and sides. 

Row 9:  3 DC, ch 2,  3 DC in each corner.  A FLDC in the first stitch after the corner stitch, 5 DC, 1 FLDC and repeat across and all on sides.  (31 DC)
Row 10:  2 SC, ch 2, 2 SC in each corner and SC in the top of each DC of the previous row. (35 SC)

 My squares are7 inches and I use an H hook.

I'm also using Red Heart Super Saver yarn.
All of my squares have 35 SC on each side .
