Introduction: Crochet Shell Lace Earring

About: A Software Engineer. I love learning new things. Hooked up with Instructables. It is the biggest find I ever made. :D Cooking and Crochet are my passion. I love to learn different techniques and cuisines.

I love shell stitch is crochet. It has an elegant look. A shell in crochet is basically just a group of stitches worked into one base stitch.

These will be a simple and earthy accessory to your summer wardrobe.

This is a simple crochet pattern. It can be made in an hour and a good pattern to start with for the beginners.
