If you use this pattern, please sign my Guest Book. I would like to know which patterns and sizes are most used, in order to create further popular designs.
The yarn and hook required for this pattern have been deliberately left unspecified. The crafter should choose the yarn of their preference, and create a sample square of one block of the pattern given below.

ch - Chain
sk - skip
dc - Double Crochet
tr - Treble
shell - Work 3 tr into same stitch
Foundation Row: Each pattern repeat is made up of 22 stitches, plus 7 more stitches for the edges. (This includes 2 ch for turning.)
Calculate the number of stitches required, and chain this number.
For example: To make 5 pattern repeats per row, chain (22 * 5) + 7 stitches, i.e. 117 stitches.
Row 1:Tr into the 3rd chain from hook, 4tr, *[ ch1, sk1, (sk1, shell, sk1) 5 times, sk1, ch1, 5tr] repeat from * for number of pattern repeats required.
Row 2: Ch2 (counts as 1st tr), 4tr, *[ch1, (shell in space between next 2 shells on row below) 5 times, ch1, 5tr] repeat from * for number of pattern repeats required.
Repeat Row 2 until desired size is achieved.
Finishing: Finish off with an edging of your choice, such as one or more rounds of:
Notes: The pattern may be repeated fewer times to produce smaller items such as:
