Stay warm this winter with this beautiful stitch. Use it to create a scarf (or a blanket).. It's called the Crunch Shell stitch. The Shell consists of a Single Crochet, Half Double and Double Crochet all in 1 stitch.

If you want to make a blanket just increase the amount of chains. You just need a multiple of 3 stitches.


Gather your supplies. I used an I/9 Hook (5.50mm, 5UK)

Step 2: Pattern

Hook I/9 5.50mm (5UK)

GAUGE: Ch 24 = 7 inches 3 1/2 stitch per inch 5 rows = 2.75 inches


Shell is (SC, HDC, DC) in the indicated stitch

DC = Double Crochet

HDC = Half Double Crochet

SC = Single Crochet


Chain 24 or multiple of 3 chains

Row 1: Shell in 4th chain from the hook. *skip 2 chains, Shell in next chain* repeat until 2 chains remain then skip 1 chain then 1 DC in the last chain.

Row 2: ch3, *Shell in next DC (which is the first stitch of the group). Skip HDC, SC* repeat doing 1DC In TCH

Repeat row 2 for the rest of the pattern.
