Continue to crochet in the back of the chains, sc 4 in the last chain and mark the 2nd, 3rd and 4th stitches of the 4 sc that you just did with st markers. (38)
Sc 1 in the first st with marker and put back the stitch marker. *sc 1 in the following sts which do not have stitch markers until you reach a st marker, sc 2 in the sts with st markers (put back the st marker into the 1st st of the increase).* Repeat from * to * until you are back at the starting point.
