Continue in this pattern until you have 4 groups of 3 dc’s with a chain 3 in-between, then close the round with a slip stitch:

And now we have the first round complete, this is also the way you create a regular granny square.

Next round, we can join in the color of your choosing and chain 3 (counts as first dc):

dc two more times into the same stitch as the chain 2 above, then with NO CHAINS between last dc and next dc you will create 3 dc’s into the next hole, followed by a chain 3 and 3 dc again (here we have our edge):

I finished on an odd number of 3dc clusters in the previous round , hence I will have to work by inserting the crochet hook into the middle of the second dc in the 3 dc group, then dc:

The following pictures explain the next round which is worked in the same manner as the previous round.

Now, let’s finish the next three corners without finishing the final round so it look like this:

We can complete the next three corners together, begin with a slip stitch as shown in the picture below:

The 3dc as shown:

And you just keep going in this way, add as many more rounds as you like then start the new edges as described above and so on.

I could have used more yarn colors to make it easier to see the superimposed squares. Hope you are all now able to crochet this beautiful pattern!!!

Below are the original instructions that caused some confusion, I have kept them there for reference.
