- Skip 2 CH (counts as 1 DC), 2 DC into the next CH, * 1 DC into the next 3 CH, using next 3 stitches create DC3TOG, using next 3 stitches create DC3TOG, 1 DC into the next 3 CH, 3DC in the next 2 chain. Repeat from * all the way to the end. End last stitch with 3DC.
- CH 3 (counts as 1 DC), 2 DC into the 1st stitch. *1 DC into the next 3 stitches, Using next 3 stitches create DC3TOG, using next 3 stitches create DC3TOG. 1 DC into each of the next 3 stitches, Next two stitches get 3DC each, repeat from * all the way to the end. Final stitch ends with 3DC.
