Skip 2 dc and turn the piece.

Row 18 – Ch 3, 7 dc in middle of ch 2 (8 dc together = 1 shell ) , * 8 dc in next middle ch 2 *
Repeat from * to * more 5 times. 2 dc in next dc , 1 dc in next 3 dc , 2 dc in next dc, ( keep increasing 1 dc evenly at both ends in every row ) ch 2, skip 2 ch, 4 dc in middle of the next cluster of 4 dc, ch 2, skip ch 2 , 1 dc in next dc , ch 2, skip 2 ch, 4 dc in middle of the next cluster of 4 dc, ch 2, skip ch 2 , 1 dc in next dc , ch 2, skip 2 ch, 4 dc in middle of the next cluster of 4 dc. Turn piece.

Row 19 – Ch 3, 4 dc in middle of the next cluster of 4 dc, ch 2, skip ch 2 , 1 dc in next dc , ch 2, skip 2 ch, 4 dc in middle of the next cluster of 4 dc, ch 2, skip ch 2 , 1 dc in next dc , ch 2, skip 2 ch, 4 dc in middle of the next cluster of 4 dc, ch 2, skip 2 ch, ( keep increasing 1 dc evenly at both ends in every row ) 2 dc in next dc , 1 dc in next 5 dc , 2 dc in next dc, *ch 2, 1 dc + ch 2+ 1 dc in between the next shell * . Repeat from * to * till the end. Turn Piece

Row 20 – Ch 3, 7 dc in middle of ch 2 (8 dc together = 1 shell ) , * 8 dc in next middle ch 2 *
Repeat from * to * more 5 times. 2 dc in next dc , 1 dc in next 7 dc , 2 dc in next dc, ( keep increasing 1 dc evenly at both ends in every row ) ch 2, skip 2 ch, 4 dc in middle of the next cluster of 4 dc, ch 2, skip ch 2 , 1 dc in next dc , ch 2, skip 2 ch, 4 dc in middle of the next cluster of 4 dc, ch 2, skip ch 2 , 1 dc in next dc , ch 2, skip 2 ch, 4 dc in middle of the next cluster of 4 dc. Turn Piece

Row 21 – Repeat Row 19 & 20 till row 30


Row 31 – Start the pattern again from Row 17. This way you can keep working till the desired length ).
