Shell Stitch Crochet Blanket
Shell Stitch Crochet Blanket

"The Shell Stitch Blanket is a nice crochet afghan pattern to wrap yourself in during the winter. Imagine sitting next to the fireplace all cozy in your own design. The crochet instructions also provide sizes for a baby blanket. The shell stitch gives it an artsy look."

Intermediate

Crochet HookH/8 or 5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

Crochet Gauge4" = 11 stitches and 13 rows

Materials List

  • Vanna's Choice Worsted Weight Yarn (4ply): 2 skeins White, 2 skeins Lime Green

Instructions

Pattern

  1. Using White Ch90,

  2. Row 1 (continue with white): Sc in 2nd chain from hook and in each stitch across (89 stitches); join in green.

  3. Row 2: Ch 1, sc in first sc, Repeat across row [skip 2 stitches, shell in the next sc, skip 2 sc, sc in next sc]; join in white; turn.

  4. Row 3: Chain 3, place 2 more dc in the same stitch

  5. Repeat to the end [skip 2 dc, sc in the next dc (the center of the shell), skip 2 dc, work shell in the next sc]; in the last stitch 3dc; join in the green; turn.

  6. Row 4: Ch 1, sc in first dc, Repeat to end of row: [skip 2 dc, shell in the next sc, skip 2 dc, sc in the next dc]; join in the white, turn

  7. Row 5: Repeat row 3.

  8. Row 6: Repeat row 4.

  9. Repeat rows 3 and 4 until you reach your desired rows. ?For baby, I recommend a minimum of 55 rows.

  10. For the last row: end on white. Fasten off. Weave in ends. 

For the trim/edging:

  1. Using Lime Green.

  2. Sc along the top in each sc. In the last stitch of the row 3sc for the corner.

  3. For the sides: in each dc place 2 sc in it. Sc one time in each sc. Sc 3 times in the last stitch. Repeat for the bottom and opposite side.

  4. 2nd-5th row: Sc along the top. When you reach the corner, find your previous 3sc and in the 2nd stitch of the 3---that’s where you’re going to place the next 3sc. Do that in each corner. Fasten off. Weave in ends

Pattern Notes

  1. How to shell: Work 5 dc in specified stitch or chain

  2. To change colors: work last stitch until there are 2 loops on hook, yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook.

  3. For the blanket, I changed colors each row. They will not be specified after row 6, but continue to change colors.

  4. For baby blanket: chain 90 and you will work 55 rows. You can increase the blanket size by increasing in increments of 10 chains (100, 110, 120...etc).

I like the color combination of this Shell Stitch Blanket - white and light green. Very subdued and laid back. Perfect for Mother's Day present or Birthday gift.

I really like the look of this Shell Stitch Blanket. After reading the written pattern right here on this page, it doesn't sound so hard to do. With basic stitches and color changes it will look great! I never thought of doing the shells in a different color to make them pop, but wow, it does look good. I can't wait to try this one. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet blanket pattern.
