Stunning Cotton Granny Square

Cotton SquareSeveral weeks ago I asked for volunteers to trial a new pattern that I had put together.  Such is the blogging community, I quickly had some skilled crochet’ers come to my aid.  The results were a number of beautiful granny squares, and some great feedback.  Based on this feedback, I have tweaked the original pattern and finally actually written the pattern up rather than it being in picture only.

    I’m not sure how to do dc4tog and dc5tog. Can you do a tutorial to show me how? I’m making the cotton granny square pattern and I’m a beginner in crochet.
