The Pattern

Ch 129 loosely.

Even rows (2-56): Tch of 4, *ch 3, sk 3, tr 5, (ch 3, sk 3, tr into next st) twice, repeat from * until end of the row, make last tr into the tch.

Odd rows (3-55):Tch of 4, same as Row 1, amd make last tr into the tch.

Row 57: Tch of 2, * picot, sk 1, shell, sk 1, repeat from * until at the end of the row, picot into the tch. Note: Even if you are above a chain-space, always picot or shell into the chain.

Cut yarn, pull through, cut both ends to 5 cm, and weave them in.

Have fun!
