Row 5: Mark the 25th st from each end with a stitch marker (there should be 111 sts from one stitch marker to the next one – counting the sts the stitch markers are in). Continuing to work in the 3rd loop, which is now in the back, work these 3 steps for this row:

  • Work one sc in each of the first 24 sts, which is up to the first stitch marker.
  • Next, you will repeat the following sequence for the next 111 sts, which is up through the next stitch marker [work 3 sc in each of the next 3 sts, ch 1, sk the next st], ending with 3 sc in each of the last 3 sts through the next stitch marker.
  • Now, you will work one sc in each of the last 24 sts after the second stitch marker. Ch 1, turn. (48 hdc 3rd loop, 84 sc 3rd loop, 27 ch-1 sps)

Row 6: (working under both loops now) work one dc in each st and in each ch-1 sp all the way across the row. Ch 1, turn. (159 dc)

Row 7: place your stitch markers in the 25th st on each end.

  1. Work one sc in each of the first 24 sts up to the first stitch marker.
  2. Sc in the next st (the one with the stitch marker).
  3. Work one tr in the unworked hdc that is in the center of the ch-1 from 2 rows below. This is a half-arrow st.
  4. Sk the st that behind the tr you just worked.
  5. Make a sc in the next st.
  6. Ch 1.
  7. Skip the next st.
  8. Make one sc in the next st.
  9. Begin to make a fptr in the same hdc where you worked the last fptr but stop when you have 2 loops left on the hook.
  10. Yo twice and begin to work a tr in the next unworked hdc in the ch-1 sp from 2 rows below. On the last pull-through, you’ll have 3 loops left. Yo and pull through all 3 loops. First full arrow st is made.
  11. Repeat steps 4-10 until you get to the last 2 sts at the second stitch marker.
  12. When there are only 2 sts left, work another half arrow st just as you did in step 3.
  13. Make a sc in the st with the stitch marker
  14. Make one sc in each of the last 24 sts.
  15. Ch 1, turn. (48 sc on each end, 2 half-arrows, 26 full arrows)*on all subsequent rows, the unworked hdc will be an unworked dc instead
