works best in multiple of 10 + 1 is best but you work it in multiple of 5 + 1 you might need to fudge.
Row 1. Chain desired stitches.
work 2dc in the 6th chain from hook
* Ch 1, skip 2, and dc in the next st. ch 1, skip 2 chains, and work 2dc in the next st. ending with either a 2dc or 1dc in the last st. Turn
Row 2: Ch 1, and start working into the first pair of dc sts, skipping the single dc if that was the last st of the previous row. Going around the post of the first dc of the pair as if to work a back post stitch, make 5 dc sts around the post of the st, working down the length of the post towards the foundation chain.
Then make 5 dc around the post of the next dc st, working from the foundation chain end towards the top. (First scale made.)
Sl st in the next single dc. Make the next scale in the next pair of dc sts. Repeat from * to end, working a sl st in the top of every single dc and a scale in each pair of dc sts. Turn. NOTE: If you ended this row with a sl st in the top of a single dc st, then continue with Row 3 instructions. If you ended with a scale, go to the Row 5 instructions.
Row 3: Ch 3, dc in the same st. *Ch 1, dc in the middle of the next scale. Ch 1, work 2 dc in the top of the next sl st. Repeat from * to end, working 2 dc sts in the top of each sl st, and 1 dc in the top of each scale. If the previous row ended with a scale, work 1 dc in the left corner of the last scale, as shown. Turn.
Row 4: Repeat Row 2, working scales in the dc pairs and sl sts in the single dc sts. NOTE: If you ended this row with a sl st in the top of the dc st, then repeat the Row 3 instructions for the next row. If you ended with a scale, continue to Row 5.
Row 5: Ch 1 and sl st in the center of the last scale made. Ch 4 (counts as first dc and ch1), then work 2 dc in the next sl st. *Ch 1, dc in the center of the next scale. Ch 1, work 2 dc in the next sl st. Repeat from * to end, working sts as appropriate. If the previous row ended with a scale, work 1 dc in the left corner of the last scale, as shown. Turn.
From here you should be able to see the pattern. Work the scaffolding and then work the scales in the dc pairs. Continue as long as desired!
