  5. Hi,,, love the stitch and your bright cheerful colors. I have a question, though. In your directions you say "Base chain multiples of 3chain". Can you explain what you mean? I've been crocheting for many years, but am a little confused by this instruction. How does one make a base chain in multiples of 3chain? Thanks

    1. Hi number of stitches required for your base chain, you need 3sts for each block to the length required is in multiples of three...three chain sts for each block
      hope that helps
