Is it just 12 trebles, or is it 3 then 1 chain between each set of 3?

Just about to relaunch myself into crochet...

either although a chain in between makes it easier to count!

good point - easier is what I'm after!

I don't put a chain inbetween each set of trebles simply because I like the finished article to be less "holey". But don't forget the 2 or 3 chain at the corners. (I use 2 some use 3...)

Just be consistent

I do 1 chain between each set at the sides and 2 in a corner.

There isn't really a right or wrong way to do it. Loads of patterns out there that use various combinations. It's personal preference.

I put one chain between each three trebles as it helps me count and puts me in a rhythm to get me to the corner.

I did my first grant square last weekend from The little tin bird website, I find it very easy. and addictive. I want to do everything as a square

Good luck, let us know how you get on.

Depends how you feel and the look you want to achieve... the longer the chain between the clusters the more "holey/lacy" the effect you're going to get.
