I am currently making this afghan for a wedding gift. I love it and it is so beautiful! However, I think there may be a mistake in the first step of strip one's edging. Where it says ch 1, 2 dc in ch 1 sp of Shell, ch 1, skip 2 dc, dc in next dc, rep from , I think it should say 2dc in next do after crocheting into the shell. When I do the next step, I was not able to skip one do and chain space, because there were not enough dcs. I may be wrong and I may be the only one but this just makes more sense to me. Thank you for sharing this beautiful pattern!

That should say "dc" not "do" (this happened twice because of autocorrect)

@donnacatherine13 5 623339 thanks for sharing! Let us know how you afghan turns out. I am sure the happy couple will love it. We will take your pattern suggestions into consideration. -Kaylee, Editor of FaveCrafts

If you made just one panel it would be a pretty scarf.

I thought the same thing the whole time I was making it!

I don't have a printer, so I tried to copy to turn into a PDF so I can save to copy elsewhere, but can't get it to work, please help. Thank you

I made a version of this afgan into a beautiful baby blanket I used the shell panel and used a different edging It turned out very pretty I am now making another afgan using again just the shell panel but using the directions for the edging and joining as the pattern shows I used A light rose pink center panel and white trim then used a darker pink and then into a wine color alltrimmed in white I made of the panels would like to put up a photo of both afgans if it is allowed This is a pretty easy afgan to make except I have never whipsticthed to join and wasn't forsure if I was doing that right I learned how to crochet when I was about but didn't learn how to read a pattern I self taught my self how to read a pattern I still have someRead More problems understanding directions but if I can see the pattern it really helps so thank you very much for showing the finished project
