Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row/ round 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 row/ round, so just choose your best technique ?

Special stitches used: 

3dc-shell stitch: ( 3dc into same stitch or space )

5dc-shell stitch: ( 5dc into same stitch or space )

7dc-shell stitch: ( 7dc into same stitch or space )
