Chain 3 equals a dc stitch; when placing your last dc st in a row, place on the top of the ch3 of turning chain from the row below.
Chain 4 equals as a tr stitch.
Chain 9 equals 1 tr + ch5; when placing your last tr st in a row, place in the 4th ch-st of turning chain from the row below.
When placing your dc or tr sts in the chains, be sure to work into the ch-st itself not around the chain. This gives the design a more finished and cohesive look.
