Crochet Solid Shell Pattern and Video

Tri color Solid Shell

  4 colored Solid Shell
 1 yarn Solid Shell




I finally found a Crocheted Solid Shell pattern that works. This is a great pattern to try if you haven't already. Great for any beginner crocheter. The solid shells are anchored by a single crochet that is done in-between them.

Skill Level: Beginner
Hook Size: I
Gauge: ¾ row per inch and 3 ¼ sts per inch
(or .75 rows per inch and 3.25 sts per inch)
Tri-color Swatch: 8 inches wide by 3 1/4th inches tall

Abbreviations 
* = Repeat instructions between the astericks
st = stitch
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
Shell = 5DC's (corrected 5/31)


Pattern
You need a multiple of 6 + 2 chains

Row 1: Sc across row

Row 2: ch3, 2dc in same sts as the chain 3,*skip 2, 1 Shell in next stitch (which is the sc from previous row), skip 2, 1 sc in the next* across the row

Row 3: ch3, 2dc in same st as the chain 3, *1sc in the center of the next shell, skip 2, 1 Shell in the next stitch, skip 2 * repeat 2 times more then do 1 sc in next stitch skip 2 then so 3 dc in last stitch.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 as needed for your pattern

  1. Hi Heather - you don't say how many dc's are in the shell. Have not watched the video, only looking at the pattern. Thanks for posting this.
