Ok this square I was inspired to make because of the Stitch sampler afghan I am trying out atm. I thought maybe a square that has several different stitches and methods would be kinda fun. So here it is......

 

Materials:

Roughly about 3 ounces of WW or cotton yarn

Size I (5.50 mm) hook

 

Special Stitches:

Popcorn Stitch: Do 5 Dc in stitch indicated then remove hook and insert in beginning 5 Dc cluster and back into last then Yo and pull through both loops on the hook.

 

Cluster Stitch: *Yo insert hook into stitch indicated, Yo and pull up a loop, Yo and pull through two loops on hook* repeat from *to* twice more then Yo and pull through all 4 loops on hook. In stitch indicated.

 

V Stitch: (Dc, Ch.1, Dc) in stitch indicated.

 

Cross Stitch: Skip two stitches Dc in third stitch then Dc in previous stitch.
