Hi meeta,

Hi meeta,
The pattern without corners is multiples of 6 chs + 9 additional chs.
To check your gauge, make a foundation chain of about 21 chs.
1st row – h4ch, (dc1, ch1, dc2) into 1ch, hdc3, [ch3, hdc3] to last 1ch; shell1
2nd row – h2ch, sl.st.1, sl.st.1 into shell, ch3, (dc1, ch1, dc2) into shell, flower1 into arch of 3 chs to shell; shell1 into shell
3rd row – h2ch, sl.st.1, sl.st.1 into shell, ch3, (dc1, ch1, dc2) into shell, (ch3, hdc3 between picots] to shell; ch3, shell1 into shell
4th row – h2ch, sl.st.1, sl.st.1 into shell, (dc1, ch1, dc2) into shell, (Vst, picot1, dc2) into arch of 3chs, flower1 into arch of 3 chs to last arch of 3chs;(dc2, picot1, Vst) into arch of 3chs, shell1 into shell
5th row – h2ch, sl.st.1, sl.st.1 into shell, (dc1, ch1, dc2) into shell, hdc3 between picots, [ch3, hdc3 between picots] to shell; shell1 into shell
Repeat the pattern from the 2nd row.
Happy crochet!

Hi Rosy,

Hi Rosy,
I would work the 4 rows of the pattern without working first and last shells, and then join/seam sides together.
1st row – ch3, [flower1 into arch of 3 chs] to end; dc1 + RC6
2nd row – [hdc3 between picots, ch3] to end; dc1 + RC3
3rd row – (Vst, picot1, dc2) into arch of 3chs, [flower1 into arch of 3 chs] to last arch of 3chs;(dc2, picot1, Vst) into arch of 3chs, dc1 + RC3
4th row – hdc3 between picots, [ch3, hdc3 between picots] to end; dc1 + RC3
Happy crochet!
