cdc means crossed double crochet but I will try this weekend

Hi there! I've updated the pattern with more thorough stitch explanations. I hope that helps!

I would love to make this but the directions are confusing. The abbreviations are not spelled out. For example it uses the abbrev. cdc. Is this cross double crochet? If so, why does it say at the end of the row there will be 45 cdc and 45-ch1 spaces? I am not aware that cdc leaves a space between so this does not make sense. Can someone help here with all the abbreviations and clarify why there would be 45 ch1 spaces at the end of row 2?

Hi there! Thank you so much for your comment. I've updated the pattern to include the notes that were missing! There are explanations now for all the special stitches. I hope that helps!
