This square is made in Garter stitch and it is a very interesting square if you need to pick a stitch you skipped, because it needs to be picked up in a garter stitch way, pick one stitch from the front and the next one from the back. You learn something new all the time lol! This square will also be your gauge measurement, you will gauge all your squares by this one. Mine came up 8.5 by 8.5 inches so I am at about 4.6 stitches per inch on size 6 US, unblocked in cotton. See you in the next Square.
