12 inch square designed for an exchange. I think this is really lovely! Also, there is a good 7 inch square in there as well. Not alot of difficult stitches, fun and easy. 
Materials:
I hook
2 or 3 colors of worsted weight yarn (CA and CB)
This was done in Cream (CA) and Maroon (CB).

beg cluster: ch 3, (yo, insert hook in loop, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull thru 2 loops on hook) 2 times, yo pull a loop thru 3 loops on hook.
cluster: (yo, insert hook in loop, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull thru 2 loops on hook) 3 times, yo pull a loop thru 4 loops on hook.
V-Stitch: dc, ch 2, dc in designated st
 
With CA, ch 4, join to form a loop
Round 1: Ch 3, 11 dc in loop, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3.

Round 2: Ch 1, (sc, ch 3) in each dc around (12 loops), join to 1st sc.

Round 3: Sl st in first loop, beg cluster in loop, ch 3 (cluster in next loop, ch 3) around, join to top of 1st cluster. Finish off CA.

Round 4: Join CB in any ch 3 loop, ch 1, 5 sc in each loop around, join to 1st sc.

Round 5: Sl st in next 2 sc, (ch 4, 2 trc, ch 3, 3 trc) in same st, [*ch 1, skip next 4 sc, 3 dc in next sc, ch 1, skip next 2 sc, 3 hdc in next sc, ch 1, skip next 2 sc, 3 dc in next sc, ch 1, skip 3 sc*, (3 trc, ch 3, 3trc) in next sc] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 4th ch of beg ch 4.

Round 6: Sl st to corner, (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in corner, [*ch 1, (3 dc in next sp, ch 1) 4 times*, (3dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in corner] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3. Finish off CB. This would make a good square on it's own. I believe it would measure about 7 inches.

Round 7: Join CA in any corner, ch 1, [(sc, ch 5, sc) in corner, (ch 5, sc in next sp) 5 times, ch 5] 4 times, join to 1st sc.

Round 8: Sl st in next loop, ch 1, 5 sc in each loop around, join to 1st sc.

Round 9: Sl st in next 2 sc, (ch 3, 2dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in same sc, [*(ch 2, skip 4 sc, 3 dc in next sc) 6 times, ch 2*, (3dc, ch 3, 3dc) in corner sc] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3.

Round 10: Sl st to corner, (ch 3, 2dc, ch 3, 3dc) in corner, [*skip next dc, (V-Stitch in center dc of next 3dc group, dc in next sp) 7 times, V-Stitch in center dc of next 3dc group, skip next dc* (3dc, ch 3, 3dc) in corner] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3.

Round 11: Sl st to corner, ch 2, 4 hdc in corner, [hdc in each st and sp across, 5 hdc in corner] 3 times, hdc in each st and sp across, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3. Finish off, and weave away. And, place in front of you, show your friends and family and tell them, "This is the BEST square I have EVER MADE!!!"
