I have to make a baby bunting bag by Aug. My problem is I have never heard of a 4 or 9 dcl. The directions read as follows,
4dcl (YOH. draw up a loop in next st. YOH and draw through 2 loops on hook) 4 times. Yoh and draw through 5 loops on hook.

9dcl ( yoh. draw up a loop in next st. Yoh and draw through 2 loops on hook) 9 times. Yoh and draw through 10 loops on hook.

does not matter how many times I try this I keep getting 4 loops as if doing a DC

Illustrations would help me a great deal on this one.

Thanks. Ang
