Green and brown alpaca scarf

I’m pretty sure this is alpaca yarn but I’ve been working on this scarf for so long I forget exactly what kind of yarn it is. It’s a lace weight yarn and I used a 4 mm bamboo hook to crochet a basic shell stitch. It’s incredibly soft and I think it turned out really nice.

Shell and V Stitch Scarf

For this scarf, I used a shell and v stitch and Universal yarn.  This yarn is wonderful to work with and I got it from the great yarn shop in Beaufort, SC.  Coastal Knitting is a welcoming and well stocked store and in a great location right downtown.  I got some great advice there and picked up this and a few other kinds of yarn.  If you’re ever in the Hilton Head SC area, I highly recommend making a special trip 🙂

Blues Baby Blanket

This was commissioned and I used Caron Simply Soft in two shades of blue and white and did a basic crochet shell stitch throughout.  The border is one round of single crochet in blue, then double crochet in white, then a picot for the border.  There are 17 shells across and then 11 rows of the blue colors which are 4 shells wide (can you tell i made up the pattern?) 🙂

Shell Stitch Baby Blanket

Ok, I’ve got to say, I’m extremely proud of this baby blanket!  This was commissioned by a friend for his new baby nephew.  I used Caron Simply Soft in blue and white and did a basic crochet shell stitch throughout.  The border is one round of single crochet in blue, then double crochet in white, then a tiny shell stitch outer border that places (sc, ch 3, sc) in every other stitch.  For any baby blanket I make in the future, I will certainly use this pattern (that I made up)…

Bright bamboo scarf

This is a bright bamboo fiber scarf. I used a basic shell crochet stitch.

Green shell scarf

Finally finished another shell stitch crocheted scarf. I used three skeins of Patons 100% organic cotton yarn which was great to work with.

Pink shell stitch scarf

I finally learned a simple shell stitch and made this crocheted scarf. The yarn is valley yarns ‘Springfield’ and is 88% cotton and 12% nylon. It measures about 80″ x 6″ but I imagine will shrink a little after washing. I really like this stitch and will probably us it a lot more!
