Repeat steps 4 – 6 to end of row.

Continue repeating steps 1 – 6 until you have reached the desired size and you want to stop increasing each row.

Note that each row will increase by 1 block – row 1 = 1 block, row 2 = 2 blocks, row 3 = 3 blocks, etc until you stop increasing each row.

My sample is a square of 5 rows so I will stop increasing and start decreasing after row 5.
