Join in any sp, ch 1 & sc around edge of bread working a ch 2 at the two lower corners of the bread & working a ch 1 at the top corners (see photo below).
When working along the sides work 1 sc into the side of each hdc row. Don't work your sc's too tightly or your bread may bunch a little (feel free to switch to a hook size up for this part if you can't work the sc's loosely). You should end with 21 sc along the two sides of bread, 39 sc along the top & 27 sc along the bottom.
Join, fasten off and sew in ends.
