    Absolutely beautiful! Cannot wait to make it. Will look wonderful with tights. Thank you so much for making it free for us.

    I’m confused by a portion of the directions in Round 10 that follows: ‘join with sl sto to top of ch-5 ‘. Can you tell me if this a typo? I think it means to join with a slip stitch to the top of the ch-5.

    I love this pattern and plan to make it and maybe the Pineapple Crochet Top for my 3 granddaughters for Christmas.

      Hi :) I would increase the number of chains between 3 dc in the rounds 2-3, change a hook to larger size and repeat the rows 2-3 to the middle of the bust and then follow the pattern. I hope you understand what I mean and I hope it’ll help you! :)

    thanks Jane.. I will try that next time for her.. meanwhile I am confused by Round 3.. it says to skip every second 2ch space – but this pulls the pattern too much and when I look at the photo, that round has 3 dc in each chain space?

    • Jane says:

      Dear Brigette, please look at the picture again. The first round is a row foundation sc, the second round is a row with ch-2 between dcs, the third row is a row where you skip every 2 ch space but the 4th round is a round with 3 dc in each ch-2 space.

      • Brigette says:

        Thanks again… I can see it now – and I have another question.. After I have repeated from round 4 to 11 twice and it says “make 3 rounds of shells” – does that just mean to repeat from 4 to 11 another 3 times??
