I totally agree with you ladies. I just ripped out 10 rows trying to figure it out, kept redoing over and over trying to figure it out. Been doing alot of searching this morning and I found this link. Going to try it now.. == nd-Blue-Single-Shell-Ripple-Afghan/ml/1

It's a very pretty afghan. However, as other posters have mentioned, the instructions are not accurate. As written , the stitches do not line up vertically as shown in the photograph.

Hi Maureen, For specific questions related to this pattern, we suggest contacting the pattern designer directly via her profile page. Thanks!

I agree with the other posters....there's something wrong with this pattern. I'm coming up with too many dc left at the end of my row.

Shell in Shell..this means crochet another shell in the "chain two space" of the previous row shell.

I have started this afghan and have come upon a problem - I'm not sure what it means to "shell in Shell" and it also seems that as I continue on I have too many dc and do not end up back on top of my previous row 3dc. Please help as I am anxious to work on this afghan.

I agree woth you. Something about these instructions isn't right and I can't figure out how to adjust them. I'm sorry bacause the afghan looks so pretty.

Wow you are so talented I love everything you design but this is by far my favorite..Thank you so very much for sharing..
