Row 18:
Work in pattern. Repeat from first dec row through row 18 twice. Working across 1 stripe less on each side of marker in each repeat:
For Medium Only:
Repeat the first 10 dec rows.
Next row (For Small and Medium Sizes):
1 sc in each dc and 3 sc in each ch 3 loop, cut thread and fasten off.

FINISHING: EDGING:
With wrong side of motifs facing, attach thread in corner loop of first motif already worked in, ch 4, sc in same loop, * ch 7, sc in next loop, * between *'s 8 times more, ** sc in first free loop of next motif, repeat between *'s 5 times more, repeat from ** across motifs ending repeat between *'s 9 times, ch 4, sc in same loop, turn.
Row 2: Ch 3, 4 dc in first loop, * dc in next sc, 7 dc over next loop, * repeat between *'s 7 times more, ** dc in next sc, 5 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc in next loop, 1 sc, 1 hdc, 5 dc in loop of next motif, repeat between *'s 4 times, repeat from ** across row ending repeat between *'s 8 times, 4 dc in loop, dc in sc, working up front of skirt, work 2 dc over side of each row, cut thread, do not turn.

Row 3:
Attach thread in first st, ch 7, sl st in 4th st from hook for picot, (ch 1, dc in same st as beg of ch 7, ch 3, sl st in dc for picot) twice, * ch 3, skip next 3 dc, sc in next dc, ch 3, skip next 3 dc, in next dc (dc, picot, ch 1) twice, dc, picot, (picot shell made), repeat from * 7 times, ** ch 3, skip next 3 dc, sc in next dc, ch 3, skip next 3 dc, keeping last loop of each st on hook 1 dc in next dc, skip next 6 sts, 1 dc in next st, thread over and work off all loops at one time, ch 3 picot, (ch 3, skip 3 dc, sc in next dc, ch 3, skip 3 dc, picot shell in next dc) 4 times, repeat from ** across row; then work picot shells with ch 3, sc, ch 3 between shells up entire front, cut thread. With right side of skirt facing, attach thread in front loop of first dc of row 2 of skirt above motifs. Work between *'s of row 3 of edging across row.

<p>Is this for an adult or a child? I would love to make it if I knew the actual sizes it makes and if I had a list of materials? Did I miss this info somewhere?</p>
Honestly I'd just buy it off of you lol, but other then that it seems like a cool project.
Lovely!
