What will our next row be? Your vote helps decide!
sc around, with an ADDED (elongated) SC (the increases) in-between the sets of two puff stitches of row 4. [52 stitches]
sc around, with “chain 3” between the sets of two puff stitches of row 4.
This gives us a little loop to do something with in the next row – work over, work under, work around [55 stitches]
sc until you get to the puff stitches; chain 2, 1 puff stitch between the two puff stitches of row 4; chain 2; sc to the next puff stitch. [55 stitches]
(this might look nice in the same colour as row 4… I didn’t try it, though)
(sc 1st 4 st, ch 3, sc in same st and next 3 sc, puff stitch (as in previous row), seal with sl st, long dc in previous row between puff sts, puff st, sl st) 5X. sl st to join.
