I thought I've pinned this before but not yet. This is another good project to make. Here's the pattern that shows a step-by-step procedure with pictures http// == amshell-tutorial.html. This is so challenging to make.

I have made this up to the end of row 3 and have 3 left over stitches instead of 2 like the pattern says. So I tried it again and counted the stitches perfectly and still have 3 stitches left over. I can't bear to rip it out again so I think I will do 2 slip stitches together then I will have the 2 that the pattern states. Ugh. Has anyone else had this problem at the end of row 3?

Love it! Can you please tell me how you did the edging?

Very nice pattern but it would be so much easier to make if the instructions were written in text form.
