  1. Row 6 says to ch 2, sk 2 dc, 2 dc in ea of next 4 chs, sk 2 dc, ch 2. .
    sorry but there are no dc in row 5.
    I think someone should have crochet this before posting it.

  2. Christine frost says:

    I have done rows one to 4 twice but don’t end up with 72 double chains ???

  3. Very nice pattern but could Rows 10 and 11-12 be in the wrong order?
