On the other side: 2 loops together with sc, ch 2, 2 loops together with sc, ch 4, 3 loops together with sc, crochet down 3 loops with 3 sc + 3-ch picot + 4 sc, ch 3, 5 loops together, crochet up 5 loops with 6 sc, 4-ch picot, sl st in same 5 loops together, ch 7, 3 loops together with sc, ch 4, 2 loops together with sc, ch 4, 2 loops together with sc.
