I really enjoyed this block. I am finding that I like to work back and forth in crochet as opposed to in rounds. This may be becuase I was a knitter long before being a crocheter. This block ended up much bigger than some of my other blocks and I may have to redo it. I really like the texture that the tr crochets gave it.
row 1: (right side): sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in first sc. *tr in next sc, sc in next sc; repeat from * across.
Row 3: ch 1, turn, sc in each st across
repeat rows 2 and 3 to desired size.
