It’s time to bask in the glory of the shell stitch!

Although we recently covered seashells as a theme for crocheting, it’s been a while since we have looked in depth at the shell stitch. So, without further ado and diving right in, here are beautiful shell stitch blanket ideas that will show you the true versatility of this wonderful technique. What you will notice, is that the stitch makes a flowing, gentle texture that is very amenable to variations in color. Moreover, the shape and size of the blanket are also entirely up to you. In fact, the only constraint is your imagination, and the wavy edge which this stitch makes.

Are you having trouble deciding on the colors for your shell stitch blanket? Consequently, here is a project that uses three bold colors that transition between one another. Furthermore, the sharp contrsats creates the illusion of texture shifts, even though the whole blanket is made in an identical stitch.

However, multi-colored is not the only way to go. In fact this project shows that the shell stitch certainly looks gorgeous in a single color. To summarize, this project is understated, sophisticated and elegant, all at the same time.

Conversely, there are situations where a panoply of color is the correct way to do things. Thus, turn the monochrome into the polychrome with this version of the previous shell stitch blanket. Indeed, I’m having a hard time taking my eyes off it, and I’d love to have one for my own beach outing.
