Crochet Shell Border Pattern is very fun and easy.
The pattern has only one row, so it is fast to make it.
Therefore, I use it for summer projects like scarves, shawls, summer tops and the like.
Because of the summer I used:
- sport cotton yarn
- Hook 3 mm (C2 or D/3)
In addition to the written, you can also watch the video.
Crochet Shell Border Pattern (US terms):
Abbreviations in the pattern:
- sl st – slip stitch
- ch – chain
- dc – double crochet
- ch-3 picot – ch 3 and make 1 sl st in the first chain
- shell – 2 dc, 1 picot, 2 dc
Let me first say that the border is for the fillet stitch: 1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc.
So, START with the sl st in the first dc.
Then, skip the next ch-1 space, (2 dc, 1 picot, 2 dc) in the next dc.
This means that the first shell (2 dc, 1 picot, 2 dc) is completed.
(skip the next ch-1 space, 1 sl st in the next dc, skip the next ch-1 space, 1 shell in the next dc) as you need.
So, you can see the shell pattern in the photo as well as in the video.
