In these dc spaces, work 2 dc in each dc space* (will be 5 times). *Repeat* on other side but when you get to the end work 2 dc in 4 spaces (the chain 3 dc in same space counts as one, total of 5). Slst to top of ch3.

Work 2dc,1dc,2dc,1dc,2dc,1dc,* repeat  until you have a total of five 2dc spaces. *Repeat* on other side but you will have a total of four 2dc spaces, (the ch3 dc space counts as one 2dc space).
