  7. Hi! Love the square. I did find I needed to use a "J" hook to make it be a 12" x 12" square. Is it possibly a typo to use a "H"? We used this pattern for a CAL and no one reached 12" square without either using a larger hook or adding rows. Thanks for sharing the pattern. It's very pretty!
    Hugs, Dena

  8. Dena, Thank you for using my square! I'm sorry the recommended hook size didn't work for your group. I double checked and it's not a typo, I did use an H hook. But I've been told I crochet a little on the loose side so that may be the issue.
