Abbreviations: DS = double stitch
R = ring
SR = split ring
CH = Chain
+ = join
- = picot
DDS + double double stitch
clr = close ring
CTM = continuous thread method
ROUND 1: R1 = 9DS – 3DS. clr
R2 = 3DS + (R1) 6DS – 3DS. clr
R3 = 3DS + (R2) 9DS. clr
CH1 = 15DS + ( - R3/R2)
CH2 = 10DS +(- R2/R1)
CH3 = 15DS + (Base R1)
CH4 = 4DS - 4DS – 4DS – 4DS + ( - R1/R2)
CH5 = 4DS – 4DS – 4DS + ( - R2/R3)
CH6 = 4DS – 4DS – 4DS + (Base R3)
CH7 = 15DS
R4 = 3DS – 3DS + (3º - CH6 ) 3DS – 3DS. clr
R5 = 3DS + (R5) 3DS – 3DS – 3DS. clr

CH8 = 18DS – 18DS + ( R4/R5/R6)
CH9 = 15DS
Repeat 4x by joining in the center.
Joining the squares: Start by joining the 3rd picot of the 2nd chain of the corner clover and then the 1st picot of the 3rd chain of the corner clover. Then join the picot of the central ring of the smaller clover. All squares are united following this scheme. See diagram
Corner: Start by joining the line with CTM in the 2nd ring of the lesser square clover.
CH1 = 7DS – 7DS + (4th picot of the 1st Chain of the corner clover)
CH2 = 7DS – 7DS + (1st picot of the 2nd Chain of the corner clover)
CH3 = 7DS – 7DS + (3rd picot of the 2nd Chain of the corner clover)
CH4 = 7DS – 7DS + (1st picot of the 3rd Chain of the corner clover)
CH5 = 7DS – 7DS + (picot of the 2nd ring of the minor clover).
ROUND 2: R = 5DS + (picot of the Round 1 Chain)
In the corner make 3 rings in the same picot of the Chain of Round 1). See diagram.

ROUND 3: CH = 4 DS-2DS-2DS-2DS-2DS-4DS + (Picot of ROUND 2). Work around the towel.
ROUND 4: CH = 4DS ----- 4DS + (picot of ROUND 3). Work around the towel.
ROUND 1: R1 = 1DS-1DS (6X) clr. 1 MP
