Row 5- Rep. row 2. Row 6- Rep row 3. Row 7- Rep row 4. Continue repeating these rows in this sequence for pattern, if you wish to use it for a scarf or something like that. For an afghan block or strip: If you would like to use this pattern for a sampler afghan, to combine it with other blocks, make a swatch with the hook you will be using for the other blocks and make sure you will be getting the exact gauge so that the block will fit perfectly with the size of your other blocks and simply make the pattern repetions until you reach the size of your other blocks. If you will be doing a mile-a-minute type of strip lapghan, just keep on going up until you reach the size you want.
You can also use this stitch for a stole. I have started a scarf with it and I like the feel. Not too heavy, and yet warm
