Oh, beloved shell stitch! It’s so versatile, easy to make and comes in all shapes and sizes. Whether you need simple blanket pattern, edging or an inspiration for lacy shawl, it’s there for you. Shells are one of the most popular stitches, because the basics are very simple, and you can later modify it to your needs. Usually, you make it by working 5 or more double crochet stitches through the same stitch. This way, they are side by side, making half-moon shape. The size of the shell depends greatly on the kind of stitch you use (single, half or double crochet), as well as the amount of stitches worked through the loop. If you need an idea for a gift, consider making Delicate Shell Blankets, because they look stunning!Check out these free patterns under the links below and follow us on Facebook Fanpage and Pinterest for more creative ideas!
