ROW 1: dc into 2nd ch from hook. 24 dc to end. Turn your work. (25 sts)

ROW 2-30 (BLO): ch 1, dc into the back loop only to end. (25 sts per row)

Fasten off and weave in your end.

Attach your yarn to any of the last row with your CC1, dc into each st to the corner. (dc, ch, dc) into the corner st. Work 25-27 stitches down the side, approximately 5 stitches every 6-7 stitches. 

Finish with an invisible finish.
