Row 1: make a chain that is 51 chains long. Double crochet in the fifth chain from your hook, then chain 2, then double crochet again in the same chain you made the first double crochet in. Chain 2, skip 2 chains on your foundation chain, double crochet in the next chain, chain 2 again, double crochet in the same chain that you made the previous double crochet in.
