Round 7: Sl st to corner loop, (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in corner, [*(ch 1, 3 dc in next sp) 4 times, ch 1*, (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in next corner loop] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3. (NOTE: for 7" square, finish off this round.)

Round 8: Sl st to corner loop, ch 1, [(sc, ch 5, sc) in corner loop, (ch 5, sc in next sp ) 5 times, ch 5] 4 times, join to 1st sc.

Round 9: Sl st in ch 5 corner loop, (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in corner loop, [*(ch 2, 3dc in 3rd ch of next ch 5) 6 times, ch 1, (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in next corner loop] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3.

Round 10: Sl st to corner loop, (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in corner loop, [*ch 3, sl st in next sp (3hdc in next dc, sl st in next dc, 3 hdc in next dc, sl st in next sp)-heart top made, #ch 2, sk next dc, dc in next dc, ch 2, skip next dc, sl st in next sp#, do heart top 2 times, do # to # once more, do heart top once more, ch 3, sl st in next sp* (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in next corner loop] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3. (See Photo for close up of small hearts)

Round 11: Sl st to corner loop, ch 1, [(sc, ch 5, sc) in corner, ch 5, sc in next ch 2, ch 5, skip heart top, sc in sl st after heart top, # ch 5, skip (ch 2, dc, ch 2) sc in next sc#, (ch 5, skip next heart, sc in next sc) 2 times, do # to # once more, ch 5, skip next heart top, sc in next ch 2 sp, ch 5] 4 times, join to 1st sc.

Round 12: Sl st to corner loop, (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in corner [* ch 1, 3 dc in next sp, ch 1, (3 dc in 3rd ch of ch 5, ch 1) 6 times, 3 dc in next sp, ch 1* (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in next corner loop] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3. Finish off. Now, I know we all hate it, but I can bet since there are not any color changes you will only have 2 ends to weave in, and if you tuck in the beginning tail while you work, you only have one, so lets weave in what ends you do have, sit back, and think "This is the COOLEST Square I have EVER Made!!!"
