This stitch is done in multiples of 6 + 3
Chain in multiples of 6 until you reach your desired size, then ch 3 and you’re ready to start row 1
DC into the 4th ch from the hook. DC 1 in each ch down your row. Ch 3 and turn.
Row 2 (beginning of your repeat)
the ch 3 counts as your first DC of the row. DC in the next 2 sts. *Ch 7 and skip 5 sts and DC into 6th st over. Turn your work and now you’ll be working onto the ch 7 that you just made. HDC, DC 10, HDC all on the ch 7. Then remove your hook and turn your work back around. Use the 3rd DC of the row to anchor down your feather. Then DC in the 5 skipped stitches behind your feather (the stitches we skipped when he may our ch 7 before) Then anchor your feather on this side by sl stitching into the top of the ending DC. (The DC that I am referring to is when you chained 7 before and you skipped 5 sts and double crocheted into the 6th one over, that is the DC you use to anchor on this side of the feather. * repeat for row. DC in last 3 sts. Ch 3 and turn
The ch 3 counts as your first DC of the row. DC in the next 2 sts. DC in all sts. Each section has 6 sts. The anchor DC st and the 5 dc’s that we crocheted behind the ch 7. Make sure you get each of the 6 stitches for each feather. Helps to count here. DC in the last 3 sts of the row. Ch 10 and turn.
The ch 10 counts as our first DC and ch 7. DC in the 6the st over. Turn your work and now you’ll be working onto the ch 10 that you just made. HDC, DC 10, HDC all on the ch 10. Then remove your hook and turn your work back around. Then anchor your feather on this side by counting backwards on your ch, count back 3 chs and in the top of that ch 3 you’ll insert your hook there and grab up your loop again and sl st your loop through the ch to anchor. Then DC in the 5 skipped stitches behind your feather. Repeat until the end of your row. You should end with 2 DC’s at the end of your row (not counting the DC you were using to anchor) If you only had 1, like I did, go ahead and DC 2 into your last st of row and this should correct any errors from now on. Ch 3 and turn.
The ch 3 counts as your first DC of the row. DC in all sts. (this row is like what we did in row 2)
Repeat rows 2 – 5
