When you reach the end of the last row, sc up the side of the collar towards the top. Ch 4. skip 2 sc, slip stitch in next sc (button loop made), 1 sc in each ch of button loop (so tht the loop will better withstand wear.) Fasten off, weave in tail. Sew button in place to correspond with the loop made.

There seems to be an error with the end of row 2 and the way that row 3 is worded. Did you mean to Ch 3 at the end of row 2 in order to be able to hdc in the third ch from hook? Also Row 3 states to hdc in each ch across. I assume that it should be in each hdc, right? Is there a 1 hdc increase at the beginning and ending of the Row 2 repeat and then 2 hdc increases at the beginning and ending of the Row 3 repeats?

This is such a pretty scarflette, I had to try it for my mother. But the last row of the lace is confusing me - it seems I end up with too many stitches for the what's available in the shells of row 2.

Please help!

Hi Symsol and CapeEire! I write my patterns as I make them. And I express them as they come out, in other words, if I am making a scarflet and 3 dc, ch 2 is the way somethings works out for the pattern in question, that is the way I write it down. I type it down later. But I write it downt he way the item works out fot the pattern I photograph. So the flounce of this particular scarflet came out that way because that was the way I was able to get the ruffle to curl into a pretty pleat. I wrote row 2 and row 3 as they came out for the pattern in the picture. I cannot alter them, that's how I was able to achieve the flounce. Having said that, don't go crazy about the ruffle! The ruffles are sometimes hard to make. This particular ruffle is formed by semi-circles which open up with chains in between the stitches, to create an exxagerated amount of sts in a small space, in order to create a decorative,lacy pleating. Unravel yours carefully and read the instructions carefully. Let me see if I can give you a simpler way of making it:
Row 1- Ch 2, skip 3 sts, make a shell of 6 dc in next stitch, skip 3 sts, 1 sc in next st, ch 5, skip 2 sts, 1 sc in next st,rep across row. Ch 2, turn.
Row 2- [1 dc in first dc, ch 2,] repeat across shell, ch 2, 1 sc in 3rd ch of ch 5, ch 2, *[1 dc in first dc, ch 2,] repeat across shell, ch 2, 1 sc in 3rd ch of ch 5, ch 2, rep from * across. Ch 5, turn. Row 3- [1 dc in each dc of shell, ch 2] rep across shell, ch 2
*[1 dc in each dc of shell, ch 2] rep across shell,, ch 2, rep from * across.
This is a simpler way of putting it together. It is supposed to form lacy semi-circles that fan out from shells. I hope it helps!
