From this point, all stitches are made in the spaces between the clusters of (3dc) and in the ch3 spaces of the corners

Round 7: (ch3, 2dc) in the space, *(3dc, ch3, 3dc) in the ch3 space, (3dc) in next space* x 3, (3dc, ch3, 3dc) in the ch3 space, sl st at the top of ch3

Joining The Poinsettia Squares Into A Blanket

Place all the squares on a flat surface such as the floor or a table.

Use Cream color yarn and the seamless join technique to sew the squares in long strips (5 strips of 4 squares).

Then sew the strips to each other.

The Border

Round 1: Start in the corner ch3 space, join the yarn and ch2 (does not count as a stitch), *9dc in the ch3 space, dc in each stitch across the edge until you reach the next corner ch3 space* x 4, sl st in the first dc you have made at the beginning of the round.

Round 2: ch2 (does not count as a stitch), *fpdc in the dc post below, bpdc in the following dc post below*, repeat from * until you reach the end of the round, sl st into the first fpdc you made in the round.

Rounds 3 – 6: ch2 (does not count as a stitch), *fpdc around the fpdc post below, bpdc around the bpdc post below*, repeat from * until you reach the end of the round, sl st in the fpdc that you made at the beginning of the round.
