US Terminology used
ch(s) – chain(s)
ch2sp – chain 2 space
dc – double crochet
R – row
rem – remaining

sc – single crochet
sk – skip
sp – space

* – Repeat the instructions between the asterisks the number of times indicated. This repeat will contain of multiple instructions.
() – Repeat the instructions between the parentheses the number of times indicated.
 – at the end of the row – the total number of stitches
- The ch 1 you crochet at the beginning of R3 (and repeats of R3) does not count as a stitch. All other chain stitches count as stitches in the totals listed at the end of the rows.
- Color Changes can be done in different ways. You can change color on the last yarn over (see Tutorials); or you can finish off at the end of the row and then join at the beginning of the next row using a sl st or sc (see Tutorials). I have written the instructions as though you are changing colors on the last yarn over but feel free to use the other method if you prefer.
R1: With Color A, Ch 28, sk 1 ch, 1 sc in each of the next 2 chs, *ch 2, sk 2 ch sts, 1 sc in the next st**; rep from * to ** 8 times. 1 sc in the last ch; changing to Color B on the last yarn over. Turn. 
R2: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), 3 dc in each ch2sp across (there are 8). Sk all sc sts except the last sc of the row. 1 dc in the last sc of the row; changing to Color A on the last yarn over. Turn. 
R3: Ch 1. 1 sc in the first st. 1 sc in the space where you skipped the next sc in the previous row *Ch 2, sk 3 dc, 1 sc in the ch2sp**; rep from * to ** 7 times. Ch 2, sk 3 dc, 1 sc in the sp where you skipped the next sc in the previous row. 1 sc in the last st; changing to Color B on the last yarn over. Turn. 
Rep R2 and R3 8 more times. You will have completed 19 rows in total.
Weave in all those ends.
Join new yarn (I chose color B) with a sc and work 26 sc evenly along each edge and 3 sc in each corner. Finish off and weave in ends. Block your square!
I recommend if you are using this to make a dishcloth or wish for a more solid square, work those 3 dc of each R2 into the dc 2 rows prior instead of the ch2sp from the row before. This will eliminate the spaces formed between the dc sts.
