Notes: I used Stylecraft Special Aran in colours Baby Mint, Baby Pink, Fondant, White, Saffron, Silver and Aspen, with a 5mm (H) hook to make my squares; but you can use any weight yarn you like, just be sure to use the hook size recommended on your yarn ball band. Thinner yarns will make smaller squares and subsequently, thicker yarns, bigger squares. The finished size of my 3 round squares is approx 4 inches (10cm).
