I'm not really sure where the pattern repeat is in this section of this
pattern, because the first asterisk isn't in the pattern (typo). Here's how the pattern is written:
Loosely ch 136 (154, 169).
Foundation Row: Beginning in 4th ch from hook, dc in next ch, ch 1, skip 1 ch, dc in next 2 ch; repeat from * across, end dc in last 2 ch—134 (152, 167) sts, turn.
Where does this pattern begin? I can try to e-mail Caron, but they don't have a separate link for pattern help, so I'm afraid I won't be able to get a response.
