Repeat ROWS 3 and 4 until there are 18 dc on row, then work 2 rows with 1 dc in every dc. Continue to work as follows:
ROW 1: Work the first 2 dc tog - READ CROCHET TOG, 1 dc in each of the next 5 dc, work the next 2 dc tog = 7 dc (9 dc remain on the other side of row), turn piece.
ROW 2: Work 1 dc in every dc = 7 dc, turn piece.
