3. Repeat row 2, 22 times. Weave in ends. You now have a rectangle. Cut yarn.

With brown or preferred color:

Attach brown where the last row ends. SC on each stitches.

Continue on all 4 sides of the work.

SC on each ST. Turn the work 90 degrees and pick up ST on the edge of the work. Make 2 SC on each row. You will be picking up stitches from all 4 edges of the work.

SL on the first SC from the starting row.

You will now work the 2 sides separately.

Ch 2. DC on each ST around this time on both loops. SL on the starting ST. CH 2 and turn.

Repeat this row twice more.

You will now have one row of SC and 3 rows of DC.

Cut yarn and do the same on other end.
