Row 1: Work a dc in the 5th ch from the hook. *ch 1, skip 1 ch, 1 dc in the next ch. Rpt from * to the end of the row.
Row 2: Ch 4 and turn. Work a dc in the first space (ch 1 space from previous row), then ch 1. *(dc, ch 1) in each space (ch 1 space from previous row). To finish the row, work a dc in the turning chain space.
