Rnd 2: Sl st across to first ch-2 sp, sl st into sp (Note: if making a 2-color square, at this point pull new color through to work Rnd 2, dropping old color until needed again on Rnd 3). Ch 3, in same sp work (2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc), ch 1, *in next corner sp work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc), ch 1, rep from * around, join with sl st, do not turn (24 dc)
Rnd 3: Sl st across to first ch-2 sp, sl st into sp (Note: if making a 2-color square, at this point pull new color through to work Rnd 3, dropping old color). Ch 3, in same sp work (2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc), ch 1, work 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, *in next corner sp work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc), ch 1, work 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, rep from * around, join with sl st, do not turn (36 dc)

Right edge shaping:
With right side facing, attach yarn to lower right corner of one square.
Row 1: Ch 1, over next 12 sts work 4 sc, 4 hdc, 4 dc. Fasten off.

Row 1: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), over next 12 sts work 3 dc, 4 hdc, 5 sc. Fasten off.

Matching shaped pieces correctly, hold squares with right sides together. Join yarn at end of one side seam. Working through both loops of stitches on both pieces, slip stitch crochet across to end of seam. Fasten off.
Repeat seam on other side. After seaming is completed, turn piece right side out.
Attach yarn in one side seam on lower edge of cozy. Ch 1, sc in ea st around, join with sl st. Fasten off.
