repeat rows 5-7 for desired pattern size adding the dc's to the extra stitches before the ch2 sp.

You should work 2 rows of shell pattern(2dc ch2 2dc) and 1 row of v stitch(dc ch2 dc) which will help the pattern lay flat as it progresses.

change color as you wish and have fun with the pattern

HI! Love this pattern. Do you remember what kind of yarn and size of hook you used? I suppose there doesn't need to be a set size, etc. but I am curious. Thanks!
