    Hi 🙂 Yes there is a last row! I apologize for that error on my part. I have added it to the pattern. Thank you for letting me know.

  3. can i ask a question please, once i have repeated row 2 to the required length, should i finish off with a row of something like sc into middle space of the shell with some chains otherwise there is nothing to do the 4 sc of the 1st row of the border into????
    thanks
