Hello. In the "1st row" directions, it says "Rep from * ending with 1 dc in 3rd ch of ch 4." There is no * in the 1st row instructions. Should we go back to the * in the foundation row instructions, or is there just a typo, with a * missing in the 1st row instructions?? So... once the foundation row is done, should the main part of the afghan be done with ONLY the instructions "1st row" and "2nd row" (with the supposed missing *)? Or am I supposed to continually go back to the first * under the "Foundation row" when I am crocheting the "1st row" of the pattern? Thanks.

It would be nice if the pic of the afghan was larger so you could see the actual stitches and have pics as it progresses! thanks
