On Row 5 I found it easiest to use stitch markers in the ch 2 spaces.
On Row 6 I found that I had to be careful when stitching in the ch 2 spaces--I would lose track of where I was and put the second stitch in the wrong space.
My finished piece before blocking only measures 9.5 inches, but will lie very nicely when it is blocked without having a "stretched" look to it. The side measurements of unblocked clue #1 matches unblocked clue #2.
As a side note the whole "frogging" discussion has kept my family entertained. Now when I have to frog something it is done with the sounds of "Rip it! Rip it! Rip it!" in the background!!
Thanks for all the suggestions. I have definitely learned alot in this very new crochet adventure and for those who are having difficulties, hang in there!!
"Frogging" was a new one for me, too!
