Special Stitches

  • beginning large shell (beg lg shell) = (Ch 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in indicated stitch.
  • beginning small shell (beg sm shell) = (Ch 3, dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in indicated stitch.

Insert hook through center of ring, yarn over (with working yarn) and draw up a loop. Work stitches of first round in the ring, working over both strands (the tail and the ring). After the first round of stitches is worked, pull gently, but firmly, on tail to tighten ring.
  • Join with sc = Place a slip knot on hook, insert hook in indicated stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through both loops on hook.

Notes
