Pink Shells

The pink shell baby blanket is done and I love how soft and squishy it is.

This one has great texture …. and it is SOOO fast and easy.

Free pattern was found on Ravelry – Shell Stitch Baby blanket

Yarn is Lion Brand Big Scoop – colorway is strawberry and I used a size (H) hook.

I took a chance with this one and used sport weight yarn (she used worsted) without changing the starting chain and still ended up with a nice size baby blanket about 33 inches square.

I could have continued into a 2nd skein but it seemed big enough with just one so I’m saving the 2nd skein for another blanket. With both the mint green and this one, I’ve learned that one skein will make a baby size blanket at least in these two patterns. If I want a child size blanket, I’ll use 2 skeins.


  1. Do you ever sleep? Or have you figured out how to sleep & make all these beautiful things in your sleep? LOL! I love seeing them… you do beautiful work!

  2. Hi Mary! This afghan is so very pretty. My sister used to crochet afghans just like this for babies. I wish she were still alive to see all of your pretty inspiration pieces. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Love shells! This one turned out so pretty! I’ll have to make one as soon as I get all the twin size ripple afghans done for my nieces and nephews for Christmas.
