This square yoke is composed of medallions made like those of the bonnet.
Join 2 medallions by middle picots of 2 consecutive rings; join 3rd medallion
to 2nd, leaving 1 free ring of latter between, so that a corner of 3 medallions
is formed; join 4th and 5th medallions as you did the 2nd, then form the 2nd
corner, and repeat until you have formed the square of 12 medallions. Do not
join last medallion to 1st.
