*Learning Point: This is the largest that I have gone with the project. From experience on similar projects, I know that it will go larger but you may need to make some adjustments at the corner increases. If it should start pulling or puckering, that means you don't have enough stitches in corner increases so you will need to adjust by adding 2 or 4 stitches to each corner increase. Right now the corner is at 2 DC, CH 2, 2 DC. If you wanted the corner larger, you may choose 3 DC, CH 2, 3 DC or 4 DC, CH 2, 4 DC. When you get that many stitches in the corner, you may want to do a chain 3 instead of a chain 2. This is how you can adjust any project with 4 sides that is not coming out how you think it should. What worked perfect for the creator of the pattern may not work for you. Two different people, two different crochet styles, tension and techniques. You are making the crochet piece, you can alter the end result to work for you.
