  3. There seems to be an error in row 7 of the pattern and no matter what I do, I can't seem to get it to come out with 26 shells. In the directions the call it the twin stitch and instruct to skip 2 chs between but in row 7 they instruct to sk 1 dc. I've tried it both ways and I don't know how to contact the women who posted it to get the correct instructions. They also made an error in the pants instructions for ending row 3 and starting row 4, but I just think it's a typo and skipped one of the ch 3's and the pants came out perfect. I even tried drawing it up on paper and no matter what, the directions are flawed. Somebody - please help. My email address is cheektowaga22@yahoo.com if the women who wrote this is reading this. Thanks so much.

    1. Ro 7 has to be done as written with a sk 1 between sets, make sure you have 82 sts to begin with.

    2. You are correct about the pants, there is a typo, Row 4 should not start ith ch 3, but I cannot get back into blogger to change it, am waiting on an email to fix this problem...thank you for finding it for me.

  4. I am hav8ng problems with row 7 as well as 82 does not divide by 3 and make 26 shells.

    *sk 1 dc, 2 dc in each of the next 2 sts,* - this surely adds up to 3 stitches. 82 divided by 3 = 27 shells and one stitch left over

    1. i figured i needed 78 stitches to make 26 shells, based on the way the pattern works, so i chained 40 instead of 54 and did a row of sc (39 sts). then i did a row of 2dc in each st for a total of 78, and worked rows 3 thru 6 evenly.
      ROW 7 i worked : beginning ch2 counts as first dc, 2dc in each of next 2 sts, sk 2, (2dc in each of next 2 sts, sk1) across, ending with a dc in top of beginning ch2 of previous row.
      ROW 8 : ch2, 2dc in each of 2 MIDDLE dc's of 4dc shell- 4 times. ch4, skip 5 shells. 2 dc in each of the middle 2 sts of the 6th shell, and also in the next 7 after it. ch4, skip next 5 shells. 2dc in each of the middle 2 sts of the last 4 shells. dc in top of beginning ch2
      after that it's just a matter of repetition, with a shell in the ch4 space using the 2nd and 3rd ch's
      i hope this helps

    2. sorry, from my above comment- the "sk2" at the start of row 7 should be "sk1" :)
