-To work this pattern you must be familiar with the Diamond Stitch, the Shell Stitch, and the Reverse Single Crochet, or Crab Stitch. Click on the links to view some excellent tutorials from Moogly, and Hopeful Honey on how to work these stitches. You must also be familiar with working in the 3rd loop of an hdc stitch.
