Row 1 (Right Side): Dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch; turn - 1 block made.
Row 2: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, (slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in ch-3 space of previous row changing to CB in last dc; turn - 2 blocks made.
Row 3: With CB, ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, [(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row] twice; turn - 3 blocks made.
Row 4: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, [(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row] 3 times; turn - 4 blocks made.

Fasten off. Weave in ends.
