    I think it’s hdc in blo for the part that’s not the camel stitch. The turned camel stitch will just be hdc…??? I’m working on one now…

    I may be confused but, It appears this pattern is written with a few errors in it. The “ribbing” should possibly have a “back look only” stitch and, the other special stitch, CHDC is only used a few times. I love the picture of the finished one though.
