For the second part we are going to create the back piece which is very simple and relaxing in the form of a solid granny square. 

Feel free to change colors as you please to use up the yarn scraps you have left.

Please note that for this piece we have chosen to cut the yarn after every rnd, even when it is used for the next rnd, and then starting with standing stitches.  For the neatest possible fastening off; cut your yarn and fasten after each rnd with an invisible join. 

The beginning (A)

Start by making a magic circle, ch1 and make 8 sc

8 sc

P2 - The beginning

rnd 1 (A) – start with a standing st

[3dcCL, ch2] x8

8 clusters, 8 ch2-sp

P2 - Rnd1

rnd 2 (A)  – start with a standing st

[FPsc around CL, 2 sc in ch2-sp] x8

8 FPsc, 16 sc

P2 - Rnd2

rnd 3 (C) – start in any first sc after a FPsc

*dc in the next 4 sts, (2 dc, tr,) in the next st, 2 dc in the next st; rep from * til end

per side – 8 dc, 1 tr 

P2 - Rnd3

rnd 4 (G) – begin in any tr

*(2 dc, tr, 2 dc) in the tr, dc each st; rep from * til end

per side 12 dc, 1 tr

P2 - Rnd4

Now simply continue on as for the pattern of rnd 4, increasing 4 dcs per rnd:

Rnd 5 (E): per side – 16 dc, 1 tr

Rnd 16 (G): per side – 60 dc, 1 tr

Rnd 17 (E): per side – 64 dc, 1 tr

P2 - Rnd 8

Note! Due to everyones different tension; we suggest that you wait to crochet rnd 18 until you have finished part 3 to make sure that the back piece is matching up with the your front piece. 

If you find it to be too small simply add a rnd or 2 accordingly as above, and then adjust rnd 18 so that you have 81 sc and 1 ch1-sp before beginning the assembly. 

rnd 18 (F) – begin in any tr

*(sc, ch2, sc) in the tr, [sc in the next 3 sts; 2 sc in the next st] x15, sc in the next 4 sts; rep from * til end 

per side –  81 sc, 1 ch2-sp

P2 - R18

You are finished with Part 2, well done!
