  11. Hello! I am not new to thread crochet but I am new to reading patterns. I have a few ?s. Shouldn't Row 11 say shell in every other dc? I used the picture to get to Round 19. It is very beautiful!!

    Stupid question: While doing the pineapples there is a decorative stitch dc2-tog,ch 1 Now I have been closing the dc2-tog with a chain stitch and then adding another chain but maybe I should just close the dc2=tog with a chain and go onto the next stitch?

    1. Hi Jill,

      I'm sorry, I didn't have a chance to reply to you regarding Round 11 sooner.
      Yes, you are right, in Round 11, shell must be made in every other dc. I fixed that in the pattern now. Thank you for catching that mistake and letting me know.

      As for dc2-tog in pineapples, I did only one chain and went onto the next stitch. If you prefer, you can close with one chain and then make another one, I don't think it's going to make a huge difference in how it's going to look.

      I hope this helps!
      Thank you again for catching my mistake. Happy crocheting!

  13. This is so beautiful and the loveliest thing I've ever been able to follow the pattern for- thank you for opening the door to these for us beginners. I am stuck however on round 22. It seems that I don't have enough shells or there is a mistake as you jump from 21 to 22. Is there any way you could look at that round and tell me if I I just need to perhaps undo a couple rounds and try again?
