Using the EdgeryDoo Template, a rotary cutter and cutting mat, trim all of the 8" squares. Do not trim the center piece until you have put the outside squares together and can measure exactly what size it should be. Move squares to a Piercing Pad and using the template, pierce the holes (two layers at a time)
For every 8-inch square:
Foundation Round: Begin in any corner using the 2.75mm hook. **long sc, ch 2, long sc in the corner hole, ch 2, (long sc in next hole, ch 2) **; repeat ( to ) across then repeat ** to ** around. Join with sl st to first sc in corner sp.

Join all of the 8-inch squares to form the outside frame using your favorite method. Measure the inside and cut your inside square remembering to subtract the measurement that your crocheting will take. Your crocheting will be the same as it is on the 8-inch squares. Crochet the Foundation Row, Round 1 and Round 2 all the way around the center square.
With right sides facing, use the 16 8-inch lengths of yarn to place and hold the center square. Join the center square.
