Pattern Notes

  • Ch3 is considered a dc. Remember, since this is considered a stitch, in some instances in the pattern, when you place your dc in the last st it will be the ch3.
  • Ch1 does not equal a st, always place your first sc in the same st.
  • Ch2 does not equal a st, always place your first hdc in the same st.
  • Place the (2dc, ch1, 2dc) in the center st (or 3rd st) of the 5dc of the previous row
  • As you work the pattern, you will see that the pattern begins to decrease by leaving some stitches unworked.
  • You will always have 5 stitches unworked when indicated to leave remaining stitches unworked.
  • In the rows that indicate to repeat the previous rows, note that you are repeating exactly the previous rows, EXCEPT, there will be no stitches left to be unworked.
  • Stitch count at the end of each row will be indicated in < >.
