Here is Square #8 for the Sensational Sampler. Use an H hook and block to 8". Add a dc border around it after blocking to reach 9". I used ecru, but you can use any contrasting color of your choice. Have fun and I hope you enjoy making these blocks!
With D ch 28.
Row 1 (RS): 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each ch to end, turn.
Row 2: Ch 3 (count as dc), skip first 3 sc, 5 dc in next sc, *skip next 4 sc, 5 dc in next sc; rep from across to within last 3 sc, skip next 2 sc, dc in last sc, turn.
