Warm Up America Section Pattern

This is a pattern I wrote up for the Warm Up America Charity and Caron Simply Soft Contest. Even if you're not taking part of this contest, you can whip up these squares to donate to WUA. This is a wonderful organization that takes these donations of knitted and crocheted squares and stitches them together for blankets to donate to social service organizations and other charities.

This should come out to be a 7"x9" rectangle. Depending on your tension, you might have to tweak the pattern a little to fit that size.
Stitches: Chain, double crochet, V-Stitch (dc, ch 2, dc) in same stitch

G hook
Caron Simply Soft

Ch 32
Row 1: (Dc, ch 2, dc) in 6th ch from hook (first V-St made), (skip 2 ch, V-St in next ch) across to last 2 chs, dc in last ch. Ch 3, turn.

Row 2: V-st in each ch-2 sp across, dc in top of ch-6.

Repeat Row 2 until piece measures 9 inches from chain, usually 16 rows. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
