To help with the sh st questions below....sh st is the abbreviation for shell stitch. Looking at the picture, and reading the first part of Rnd 2, the shell stitch in this pattern consists of 2dc, ch2, 2dc. Hope that helps!

I think the Sh stitch needs explaining as the previous questions show. It must be a shell stitch but no specifics as to number of double or triple crochet stitches and it doesn't look like a shell stitch in the picture, nor does it look like a cluster. I have another pattern that uses clusters and gets the same look. I need more specific instructions on the "Sh stitch".

were do yyou get the anser

were will it be posted

i also like pattern but don''t know what sh st mean and how its done

I like the pattern and will be trying it but I do have a question. I will more than likely feel foolish after getting the answer, but what does Sh St mean and how is it done? Thanks.
