I think it refers to "shell" - to continue doing the shell along the edge of the pattern.

I too am stumped by the abbreviation "sh" in step 6. Please explain.

In step #6, the abbreviation "sh" is used. I am a beginner and do not know this abbreviation nor can I find it in any crochet abbreviation lists... Can anyone help me with this one? Thanks! MLP
