    the 2nd stitch of the chain 3.

Chain 3 and turn, *double crochet in the next double crochet,

Fasten off.
Examples: 6 rows of grid for Newborn to 6 months; (will result in 
3 rows of ruffles)
         8 rows of grid for 6 - 12 months; (will result in 4 rows of 
                                                                     ruffles)

                               ruffles, add 2 more grid rows for each extra 
                               ruffle row.)
           As many rows as desired for all other larger sizes.
*NOTE: Each row of ruffles is approx. 1 inch in length.
         
        


7.  MAKE THE RUFFLES:  
   See the video lfor a better understanding of this step. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_yCNPZ83lg
   Attach yarn in any space in the first row at the top of the grid. 
   (In the bottom row of single crochet stitches,
   otherwise there will be a row of holes in the finished skirt, see 
    photo 7)
   Chain 2, make 1 double crochet in the same space.  In each 
    remaining space of the grid, make 2 double crochet,                             slip stitch to join in the top of the first chain 2.

8.  Chain 1 and turn, single crochet in the same stitch.
   *In the center of the next 2 double crochet cluster make: double 
     crochet, chain 1, double crochet, chain 1, double
crochet.  Single crochet in the space between the 2 double 
crochet cluster.   Repeat from * around, slip stitch to
join and fasten off. (Photo 8 shows one shell completed.  Photo 9 
shows the grid underneath the ruffles.)


*Move down 2 rows on the grid, attach yarn, repeat step 7 and 8 to form the next row of ruffles.
