If you have figured out direction for row 1, please send to me. I wonder about the beginning as it seemed like to many. Thanks

You can crochet this afghan in any yarn. If you have the same gauge, you'll get the same size. To make it 4" wider, just increase for 1 repeat. To make it longer crochet more rows.

I to had issues when I got to the 3rd row. So I took everything out and started over but this time I chained 1 after each stitch on row with an exception on the dc2 ch3 dc2 I left that exactly the same. It then worked for me.

You seem to have had the same issues I'm running into and am curious how you finally got the pattern to work for you. I'm usually pretty good at reading patterns and reworking them but I am at a loss with this one. And the diagram is no help since it seems to have extra stitches compaired to the picture and instructions. I will take any and all advice if someone can help. Thanks!
