Hello! I have a couple sweet blankets to share with you. I was given this fantastic bag from a dear friend. I had to fill it with something.....so I picked out some yarn that I wanted to crochet with. My Mom just came to visit and taught me how to make this stitch, so I was inspired to use it.
Here is the pattern I used that I learned from my Mom.
Slanted Shell Crochet Stitch
Row 1: Chain (x 5's) to desired length
Row 2 Do a single crochet along the chain for a foundation row.
Row 3: *DC in the first 3 stitches, chain 2 and SC into the last DC space. Skip the next two stitch spaces* and repeat all the way to the end of the row. Chain 2 and turn.
Row 4: DC 2 in the first chain space, chain 2 and SC into the same space as the DC's. Then DC 3 in the next chain 2 space (which looks like the hole between the last two stitches.) chain 2, SC in the same chain 2 space. Carry this on to the end of the row.
Row 5- desired length: Repeat row 4 and as you chain 2 and turn to repeat it makes a nice scallop along the edges.
I had enough yarn to make two blankets, so one with the slanted shell pattern, and one in a granny square pattern. They'll be tucked away until they are ready to find a new home.
Thanks for dropping by! I pray you have a beautiful day!
