I think I won’t be far from the truth, when I say that shell stitch is one of the most versatile crochet stitches. It’s full of potential and can be worked in a myriad of ways. Shells can be big, small, structural, ribbed, lacy or dense, and of course made with absolutely any yarn or thread. Summer designs are all oozing with Amazing Crochet Shell Stitch examples, whether we are talking about crochet shawls, bags or dresses. You can work it from the center or in rows, it all depends on the project. The basic idea of a shell stitch is that you work multiple stitches in the same stitch or chain space. This way the stitches form a shell shape, which then is connected to the other ones. For lightweight crochet creations I recommend fine natural yarns. Check out the use of shell stitch in the examples below. Links to free patterns are under the pictures.
