Granny Square CAL (Week 8)

I am using a 5.00 mm hook throughout with dk yarn. If you want more information about this CAL please see week 1

22nd Granny Square

Looking at the picture of the flower the first round of the pattern is wrong and should be:

Ch 3, dc into the circle, ch 2 * 2 dc, ch 2* Repeat 6 more times for a total of 8 sets. Join to top of ch 3 with a sl st and finish off.

Make a basic 8 inch granny square then sew flower into the middle. Pattern for the square can be found here 

23rd Granny Square

I did 6 rounds and the border as follows:

Round 7: Join yarn in any stitch, Ch 6 (counts as first dbtr and ch 1) dbtr in same stitch. *tr in next 2 st, dc in next 2 st, hdc in next 2 st, sc in next 5, hdc in next 2, dc in next 2, tr in next 2. [dbtr, ch 1, dbtr] in next st.* Repeat 3 more times leaving out between the [] in the last round. Join to 5th ch of ch 6.

Round 8: *(dc, ch 2, dc) in ch 1 sp, dc in each st till you reach next ch 1 sp* repeat 3 more times and join to top of first dc with a sl st.

24th Granny Square

To get 8 inches instead of doing sc in round 5 I used dc and continued until piece measured 8 inches.
