Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each round/ row instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc into 1st stitch for every first dc of each round, so just choose your best technique 🙂
