Does it mean dc dec 2 times. That is how I have done it and I come out with 2 chs at the end of row and when I turn to go to row 2 that row then isn't working out because row 1 isn't right. I'm not falling in the right ripple (ups and downs).

Can you help?

Thank you,
Hi Shelly,

I do believe Merryknitter had the same trouble. I did a post on my website with a video to answer her question, so you might find that helpful too. You can find it here.

Please let me know if that was helpful to you.

I'm sure your blanket will turn out just as beautiful as Merry's and I sure hope you share a picture with us when it's done!
