      Please help! The instructions (Row 2) say (sc, ch 3, 3 dc) in next ch-4 sp. I cannot find this ch-4 space. I get as far as: 3 dc in 4th ch from hook. I can’t figure out where the next ch-4 sp is?

    I normally prefer knitted dishcloths over the crocheted ones. This one is lovely and I have really enjoy the many different color combos that you can use. And a big plus is I can use up the many, many “scraps” that accumulate so quickly. Thanks for all these patterns.
