Chain 1, *3 single crochets in chain 6 space, chain 2, 3 single crochets. Single crochet in the top of the previous double crochet* and repeat from *. Once you get all the way around slip stitch in to beginning chain one.

Do 2 double crochets in the space where you just chained 3, chain one, *3 double crochet in the corner, chain 2, 3 more double crochet in the same space, chain 1. 3 double crochet in the previous single crochet, chain one* and repeat from *. Once you get to the end of the row join with a slip stitch at the top of the beginning chain 3.

Pretty much chain one as your step up to begin the row, 1 single crochet in the double crochets, and 1 single crochet in the chain 1 spaces, for the corners do 3 single crochet chain 2 and 3 more single crochet.
