ch = chain
st = stitch
dc = double crochet
ea = each
Note: First ch 2 counts as dc.
Row 1: ch 6, dc in first 3 chs made, making 4 dc total.
Row 2: ch2, turn. dc in 2nd stitch from hook and each stitch across, including very last st. (5dc)
|Row 2 will have 5dc|
Row 10: ch 2, turn. dc in each st across, but NOT the very last st in order to maintain 10 dc.
Rows 11-29: Repeat row 10.
Row 30: ch 2, turn. Skip first st, dc in each st across. (11 dc)
Rows 31-37: Repeat row 30 to continue to decrease. You will have 4 dc in the last row.
|Final piece is about 20" long|
At this point you could fasten off or you could crochet a border. A simple hdc around looks nice and you could even do it in a contrasting color. Another border stitch I like is the crab stitch, also known as reverse single crochet.
