  1. This is a beautiful pattern. I absolutely love it and hope to make some of these for the upcoming holiday season. Unify, I am drawing a blank with row 2. I understand to skip the first stitch and dc in the next. Then it calls for a shell in the next stitch which would be 5 dcs. Then skip the next stitch and then X stitch. That’s were my brain is coming in. Where does the X stitch actually go? Would you happen to have a video or chart so my mind can visualize it. I’m sure it’s not the way the pattern is written. It’s just my brain not wanting to comprehend how to do it.

    Thanks in advance for your understanding and assistance. I am really anxious to get started on your beautiful pattern.

      So you are doing the shell, skipping a stitch, then working the x stitch inthe next 2 sts, For the x you skip a stitch(not the one you just skipped), dc in the next st, then go back and dc in the stitch you just skipped..

  2. Hi there,
    Will you be doing in the future any C2C patterns, for advance level
