Crochet Video tutorial: Climbing Shells Crochet Stitch Pattern


Climbing Shells Crochet Stitch Pattern w/ Video

This is a great pattern for a beginner to do. As long as you can do a Double Crochet then you can do this crochet pattern.  It would be great for a scarf, blanket and a number of other items.

If you're new to the turning chain don't let it scare you. What I do is go to the last "normal" stitch and then go to the next bump. That is your turning chain. I will also show you in the video.
