R1: Dc on 5th ch from hook and count this as 1 dc and 1 ch-1 sp. [*Dc on next st] 5x. NOTE: 1 group (set) MADE UP OF 5 DCs IS MADE.
Ch3, skip 3 sts.* Repeat * * until there are 5 sets of 5-dcs, finish row with ch1, skip 1 st; dc on next st, Note: There are 4 ch-3 spaces between sets of 5dcs and 1 ch-1 on each side of the completed row. Turn.
R2: Ch3, dc on next ch-1 sp. * Ch1, skip 1 dc, [dc on next dc] 3x; ch1; skip 1 dc, 3dcs on next ch-3 space. * Repeat * * across. After the last set of 3dcs, finish this row with ch1, skip 1 dc, dc on next ch-1 sp; dc on 2nd ch of ch2 (turning chain) . Turn.
R3: Ch2, dc on next dc, [Note: Beginning crocheters, please see note 1 below], dc on ch-1 sp; *ch3, skip next 3dcs, dc on next ch-1 sp; [dc on next dc] 3x, dc on next ch-1 sp. * Repeat * * across. After the last ch3, dc on next ch-1 sp, dc on next dc, dc on 2nd ch of turning chain. Note: There are 4 sets of 5 dcs; 5 sets ch-3 spaces and 3 dc(s) on each side (edge) of this row. Turn.

After the last set of 3 dc(s) of this row, ch1, skip 1 dc, dc on next dc, dc on 2nd ch of turning ch.

Repeat R2 to R5 over and over until desired length is met. Fasten off and weave in yarn ends.
- When working on rows of stitches, The next stitch after the turning ch (ch2) is not the stitch to which the turning ch is attached but the one next to it so it appears like you are skipping a stitch but this is not a skip, it just appears like that.
