Thanks to everyone for posting their row ideas and for voting.
Idea #6 is our winner.
Row 2 PATTERN: After slip stitch to close row 1. Chain 3 (counts as first double crochet) then DC in same stitch. DC in front loop of chain st. Then DC in back loop of chain stich. DC in front loop of DC. Then DC in back loop of DC continue in this pattern total 32 stitches. This is what it looks like. Hope this makes sense.
