shell stitch crochet cowl scarf free crochet pattern

So by now it's no secret that I'm fairly addicted to crocheting during the colder months. If you've been following me in any capacity since October, you've seen me crank out project after project. What can I say? Idle hands are the Devil's playground or something, I've never been a person who likes to let my hands be idle. Crocheting is perfect for me, Noah and I can watch a movie and cuddle and I can still be creative! It's win-win.

Because I like to be able to multi task, I do a lot of very simple beginner projects that require a lot of repetition. And this gorgeous shell stitch cowl scarf is no exception. This is a single stitch, folks. For several rounds. You don't get much easier then this, so it you're looking for an impressive beginner project, this is it! Isn't it pretty?

Shell Stitch Cowl Scarf free crochet pattern

Materials:

  • H hook
  • Worsted weight yarn (I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease in stone for this product, I am so addicted to this yarn!) I used approximately 2 skeins, or 400 yards, maybe a little less.
  • Yarn needle

Key:

Ch: chain
st: stitch
sl st: slip stitch
dc: double crochet

pattern:


Ch 99. Sl st your chain into a circle (without twisting it! If anyone has an easy way to do this, please dear lord let me know, I always end up twisting mine at least once)

Row 1: Ch 2, then into  the base of your ch 2, dc 2 st in the same stitch. Every 3ed st, dc 3 together in the same stitch, then skip the next 2 and do another 3 dc into the 3ed st. You will end up with 33 'shells.' Once you have reached the end of your ch, and have arrived back at your first shell, sl st your last shell to your first shell.

Row 2-28: Ch 2, then dc 2 into the space at the base of your ch. Then skip to dc 3 into the space between shells of your precious row, all the way around. Sl st your last shell to your first at the end of every row. Weave in your ends with your yarn needle, and you're done!

  1. Thanks for the pattern. One way to avoid the twist is to crochet the first row and then join to work in the round. I find it is easier to avoid the twist when you have more to work with than just the chain. I leave a little longer tail to sew up space prior to joining to work in the round.

  6. If I wanted to make this a bit less wide, do you know what multiple I should use in making my chain to maintain the patter? Like chain to a multiple of three? I'm thinking three might be it with an original chain of 99.

    1. Definitely a multiple of three! And a slightly narrower version would be lovely too.
