repeat row 7 to desired length.
finishing: reverse single crochet in each sc and ch around (84 rsc). Sl st in first rsc, fasten off. To do a rsc, insert hook in the first stitch to the RIGHT of your working yarn. Yarn over and pull up a loop. The yarn will be twisted, but this is what we want. Complete as a regular single crochet. If you're a visual person, there are several videos available to show you how to do this. Just Google "reverse single crochet."
