In Part Two of the tutorials for the Dancing Dragonflies Scarf (click here for written pattern), we will only cover Round 3 of the pattern, which is the second row of the Dragonfly pattern stitch. Hmm... Part two, round three, row two? I hope that doesn't get mixed up! The multiples get easier from here, but the corners and edges begin to grow, getting trickier. Don't worry; ignore my confusing explanation and just follow along to see how easy it really is!

Let's get started!
To begin Round 3, you will slip stitch into the corner ch-1 space after your joining slip stitch. Ch 5 (this counts as the beginning dc and the corner ch-2 space). Make 1 dc in the same corner space to complete the first corner of this round.
Make (1 double crochet, ch 2, 1 double crochet) in the second chain-1 corner space of Round 2. (This makes the second corner ch-2 space of Round 3.)
To work around the edge (should we call it a "side"?), make (1 double crochet, ch 3, 1 double crochet) in the ch-2 space of Round 2.
Make (1 double crochet, chain 2, 1 double crochet) in the third corner space of Round 2. (This makes the third corner ch-2 space of Round 3.)
Before beginning the next set of multiples: Remember to make 1 double crochet in the next double crochet (the second dc of the corner).
*Chain 10, make a dc in the next available double crochet.* Repeat from * to * for each remaining multiple (19 more as the pattern is written).
Make (1 double crochet, chain 2, 1 double crochet) in the next corner ch-1 space. This makes the fourth corner ch-2 space of Round 3.
To work around the side: Make (1 double crochet, chain 3, 1 double crochet) in the ch-2 sp of Round 2. (Or, should we call it "the space between corners"?)
Join with a slip stitch to the third chain of the beginning ch-5. That's it for Round 3! That was easy, right? In the next round, the multiples will be worked the same way, but the corners and edges will increase with more stitches.
