NOTE: I worked this square several different times with different colors and brands of yarn. Each time I worked it I came up with a slightly different size. You may or may not need the last round to acheive a 12 inch square. Also, you may need to use a sc or a dc instead of the hdc to reach 12 inches. Round 10 will work with either a hdc or a dc, if you need to use a sc, then make 3 sc in each corner.

Round 10: sl st in each of next 2 sts, ch 2 (counts as hdc), 4 hdc in same st, hdc in each of next 35 sts, * 5 hdc in next st, hdc in each of next 35 sts, rep from * twice more, join with sl st in top of beg hdc.

:clap THANK YOU!! :hook
I made 2 of these squares last night. They work up pretty fast and there were no mistakes in the pattern.
I made 2 pink ones last night. I plan on making different colors for cancer and making lapghans to donate.
I would also like to make a few yellow lapghans to donate to military causes.
I have to pull out the lists of awareness ribbon colors that I have. If I remember right white was for domestic violence survivors. There is an women's abuse shelter nearby and I may make some lapghans for the shelter.
Thanks again! :hug

That's a great square. I can use it to make an afghan for the raffle tent for our town's Relay for Life walk next year.
