- Turning chain at the beginning of row does not count as a stitch.
- Number of rows in pattern repeat : 4
To begin: multiple 1 + 1 turning chain
Row 01. Starting in 2nd ch through back bumps, hdc to end.
Row 02|04. ch, turn, slst-tbl to end.
Row 05. ch, turn, hdc-tbl to end.
Repeat rows 02 to 05 until desired height is reached.
To get straighter edges with no holes, last stitch is worked through the back loop and the turning chain.
