Depends on the size you want:
Working in a multiple of 3 sts plus 2, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across.
TOTAL OF 5 stitches in all. The 2 stitches sounds like a border or edge.
So if you want to make it larger==
if 3 stitches equal an inch - so if you want for example
10 inches so you would take the 3 stitches x 10= 30 stitches
PLUS 2 stitches for the border
3 stitches x size and add 2 stitches for edge.
Hope this helps and good luck.
