4 ch-3 sps meaning

I'm new to crocheting and just at the start of a baby blanket that has granny afghan squares. Round 1 instructions are: ch 4, 2dc in 4th ch from hook, ch3, (3dc in same ch, ch 3), 3 times; join with slip st to top of beginning ch-4, finish off: 4 ch-3 sps.

I've already done the slip stitch and it looks great!. I don't understand how to finish. I can't figure out what 4 ch-3 sps means to do. 4 chains in the 3rd space or 3 spaces?? I have the original 4 ch plus 11 dc and 4 spaces at the corners made of 3 ch each to make up the completed square.


Thanks, Joy
