Count 8 stitches from the beginning of the row and put the stitch marker in the 9th stitch. Repeat the process on the other side.
We’ll continue to repeat the pattern between two stitch markers.

Change the color of the yarn and make 8 slip stitches. From the 9th stitch, we continue to repeat the pattern until the second stitch marker.
Row 43: slip stitch in the 9th st, CH 3, make DC 3 in the first space. Make DC 3 in each space across. Actually all the way to the second stitch marker. Make DC in the stitch where the marker is. This is the last stitch in this row. Turn your work.
