  1. Hello,
    I have a question, I am one row 2 and I have just finished the last 4 dc. The only thing left is the the chain 3 that makes up the DC from the previous row. Do I put the 2 dc in the chain space , in the same space as the last of the 4 dc or in one of the stitches of the chain 3?

    Thanking you in advance for your response.
