Written Instructions:

Rectangle Increasing:

Step 1: ch 5.

Step 2: dc in 3rd ch from hook and next 2 chs. (1 block)

Step 3: ch 5, turn.

Step 4: dc in 3rd ch from hook and next 2 chs, sl st to beginning ch 2 space.

Step 5: ch 2, 3 dc in ch 2 space. (2 blocks)

Step 6: Ch 5, turn, dc in 3rd ch from hook and next 2 chs.  

Step 7: sl st to next ch 2 space.

Step 8: Ch 2, 3 dc in ch 2-space, *sl st in next ch 2 space, ch 2, 3 dc in ch-2 space, repeat from * across. (3 blocks)

Repeat steps 6 through 8 until your corner measures desired length across. The number of blocks will increase by 1 each row.

Rectangle decreasing:

You will start by only decreasing on one side. That side will stay at 9” and the other side will increase to 23”. (Or the width and height of your book, if different.)

Step 1: Ch 3, turn, sl st into next ch-2 space.

Step 2: Ch 2, *3 dc in ch-2 space, sl st into next ch-2 space*, repeat across.

Step 3: Ch 5, dc in 3rd ch from hook and across, sl st into next ch-2 space, *3 dc in ch-2 space, sl st into next ch-2 space*, repeat across to last ch-2 space, sl st only into ch 2 space.

Repeat steps 1-3 until length of increasing side reaches your desired length. Once the other side has reached desired length, you will start to decrease on that side as well.

Step 1: Ch 3, turn, sl st into next ch-2 space.

Step 2: Ch 2, *3 dc in ch-2 space, sl st into next ch-2 space*, repeat across to last ch-2 space, sl st only into ch-2 space.

Repeat steps 1 and 2 until you get to only one block left.

To finish, sl st into last ch-2 space.

Step 3: Ch 1, turn, sc evenly around the entire rectangle, working 2 sc in each corner, join to 1st st.

Step 4: Ch 1, do not turn, 1 sc in each st around, join to 1st st.

For a square, start decreasing both sides at the same time. See video tutorial for demonstration.

Fasten off.
