Start with a little square from part 1.
Chain 3 (just like earlier at the beginning loop).
2 double crochet (2 dc) in the same space created by the 2 ch hole in the previous row.
chain 2 (2 ch)
3 double crochet still in the same space made by the 2 chain hole in the previous row. This makes the first corner.
Chain 2, then 3 double crochet, 2 chain, 3 double crochet all in the same hole at the corner.
Repeat twice more for the other two corners, then connect at start with a slip stitch and fasten off.
Successive rows follow the same pattern, chain 3 to act as the first double crochet in the new row.
Then double crochet twice to complete the first triplet.
Alternate the 2 chain (2 ch) and 3 double crochet, using the holes left by the 2 chain in the previous row. At the 4 corners, do 2 groups of 3 double crochet with a 2 chain between them in the 2 chain holes.
Successive rows follow the same pattern.
As many rows as desired can be added. I find 5 rows make for a nice size.
