Repeat in each remaining vertical loop to the end. For the last vertical loop you can go under just the one front as before, or under both loops – try both and see which you like better.

Row 5: Repeat Row 3, making sure to tuck each 3 ch loop beneath the hook as you work so they stick out the front (see below).
Row 6: (Return Pass – Pebble Stitch): Yo and pull through the first loop. *[Yarn over and pull through 2 loops] twice, ch 3. Repeat from * until there are 2 loops left on hook, yo and pull through last 2 loops. (Note that these 3ch loops are offset from the previous.)

Tunisian Single Crochet Bind Off Instructions:
Insert hook under the second vertical loop from the previous row. Yarn over and pull up a loop, then yo again and pull through both loops (just as for a regular sc st). Repeat in each remaining vertical loop to the end.
Using the Bind Off as the first section of the edging, continue to sc down the left side, bottom (chain row), and right side of the cloth, working 3 sts in each corner.
