I don't know if questions/comments are closed on this. I'm working on this project and notice after row 1 you are not told to chain 1 before beginning row2 and again on row 3. This is te same when you get down to row 5 to 7, you are told to chain 1 and turn at end of row 5 but not at end of row 6 & 7. Is this correct?

Hi Merle, thank u for spot on I have correct the pattern so they will be ch1 on each row when you turning except the previous row before start criss cross. triple crochet. So row 3 and row 7 is donot ch1 just turning and then ch3 to start the criss cross triple crochet.
