"The Shell Shorts are created in the round from the top down until you get to the crotch and then you have to work one leg at a time. The instructions are clearly written. These Shell Shorts use only the double crochet stitch for the body of the shorts and are super beginner friendly. The only sewing is when you join the crotch area with one short seam. There is a shell trim around the leg. A chained crochet belt is woven around the waist so you can tighten it for the perfect fit. "
