  2. Love your pattern and made quite a lot already — just a correction on your pattern (US Terminology (I think)
    Row 1: should read join with sl st into first sc (not dc)
    Row 3 cont. …… into each tr of previous row, ch (should read 2ch) ….

    1. Thanks ever so for that. I use Word find and replace to convert the patterns, obviously missed one! I have left Row 3 cont as it is because you are right about it needing 2ch before the shell but one of those is on the repeat of (tr, ch). Can’t see an easier way to express this, unless you can?
