Row 1: Begin with a chain 4 (Ch4). Then, yarn over and perform 1 double crochet (dc) in the 4th chain from the hook, followed by a chain 1 (ch1). Repeat this sequence a total of 6 times. Finally, complete the row by joining with a slip stitch into the 3rd chain of the initial Ch4. This slip stitch serves as the first double crochet (dc) in this round.

Row 2: Start with a chain of 1 (Ch1). In the first chain 1 (ch1) space (which corresponds to the 4th chain of the initial Ch4), work a single crochet (sc). Next, *create a shell by working 7 double crochets (dc) in the next ch1 space, followed by a single crochet (sc) in the subsequent ch1 space). Repeat this pattern 3 more times. Conclude the row by working 7 double crochets (dc) in the next ch1 space and then slip stitching to the first single crochet (sc) of the round. At this point, you should have a total of 4 shells and 4 single crochets.

Row 3: Start with a chain of 4 (Ch4) in the same stitch. In this same stitch, create a v-stitch cluster consisting of 1 double crochet (dc), chain 3 (ch3), 1 double crochet (dc), chain 1 (ch1), and 1 double crochet (dc). This marks the beginning of the v-stitch cluster. Next, *chain 5, skip the next 7 double crochets (dc), and in the subsequent single crochet (sc), form another v-stitch cluster. Repeat this process 2 more times for a total of four v-stitch clusters. Finish by chaining 2 and working a double crochet (dc) into the 3rd chain from the first v-stitch cluster.

Row 4: In the next ch1 space, create a shell cluster by working 7 double crochets (dc), then place a single crochet (sc) in the ch3 space, and finally, work 7 double crochets (dc) in the following ch1 space. Continue by placing a single crochet (sc) into the 4th (middle) double crochet (dc) of the shell from the previous row. Ensure that the single crochet (sc) encompasses the ch5, effectively securing it. Repeat this process for the next shell cluster in the v-stitch cluster below, and continue for a total of 3 more times.

After row 4, your piece should look like this – you will have 4 corner shell clusters – these are going to be the foundations for your corner throughout the entire piece

Row 5: Begin with a chain of 4 (Ch4), then double crochet (dc) into the same single crochet (sc) (forming the first v-stitch on the initial side of the square). Chain 5 (ch5), create a v-stitch cluster by working it into the single crochet (sc) of the next corner shell cluster, and chain 5 again. *Proceed to make a v-stitch into the next single crochet (sc) located between the shell clusters (establishing the v-stitch on the second side of the square), chain 5, and once more, create a v-stitch cluster into the single crochet (sc) of the following corner shell cluster. Repeat from * two additional times. Afterward, chain 2 (ch2) and double crochet (dc) into the third chain from the beginning chain 4 (ch4) of this round.

After row 5 your piece should look like this – there will be a v-stitch cluster into the middle sc of each of the shell clusters from the row below, and a single v-stitch into the sc between each shell cluster.

Row 6: *Shell into the first v-stitch, single crochet into the central double crochet of the shell immediately below, create a shell cluster within the following v-stitch cluster, and single crochet into the central double crochet of the shell directly below. Repeat this sequence * 3 times.  Set up is complete

For the body of your project, repeat these two rows:

Row 7: Begin with a chain of 4 (ch4), then work a double crochet (dc) into the same sc (count this as your first v-stitch). Continue by chaining 5 (ch5), create a v-stitch in the next single crochet (sc) until you reach the first corner. Chain 5 (ch5), and form a v-stitch cluster in the corner. Next, chain 5* (ch5), create a v-stitch in the sc between the next shell, chain 5 (ch5) (repeat this for the next corner shell cluster), and form a v-stitch cluster in the middle sc of the corner shell cluster. Keep repeating  from * until you have completed a shell cluster in the 4th corner. To finish the row, chain 5 (ch5) and work a v-stitch into each of the sc stitches between the shells until you reach right before the first v-stitch of the round. Chain 2 (ch2) and double crochet (dc) into the 3rd chain of the first v-stitch. (Note that on row 7, this will be right after the fourth corner cluster, but on subsequent rows, there will be more stitches before you reach your starting v-stitch).

Row 8: Make 7 double crochets* (7dc) in the next v-stitch, then single crochet (sc)** into the middle dc of the shell below. Repeat from * to ** until you reach the next corner v-stitch cluster. In the corner v-stitch cluster, create a shell cluster, and then sc into the middle dc from the row below***. Continue repeating * through *** 3 more times until you reach the end of the round.

Repeat these two rows, and conclude with a row 8.

Crochet tip: The v-stitch clusters ONLY go in the 4 corners of the piece, in all other cases you will do a vstitch into the sc on the four sides on your row 7 repeats.
