Skill level: Easy
“Beautiful!” “Easy!” and “Very pretty!”—that’s what people who’ve made the Criss Cross Crochet Shells Throw say. And, can you blame them? Not only does this afghan pattern feature delicate shells and pretty shades of pink, but it’s a cinch to create!
If you’ve never tried the shell crochet stitch, this is your chance to learn. It’s such a pretty stitch and so versatile, you’ll use it again and again. Plus, at just 44” x 53”, this crochet throw works up quickly, too. Just complete your shell stitch rows, add the edging, and you’re done.
The Criss Cross Crochet Shells Throw goes anywhere. Curl up with it on your living room sofa while you read, drape it over the end of the guest room bed, or keep it handy in the baby’s room to snuggle with. This throw looks great as part of your décor while also providing comfort and warmth.
The Criss Cross Crochet Shells Throw is worked in three shades of pink, which gives it a dainty, feminine look. But you can choose any color scheme you want. Use neutral shades to go with farmhouse décor, soft blues and greens for a beachy feel, or bright colors with black for granny chic appeal. Of course, this crochet throw would make a terrific baby gift when worked in the nursery colors.
Roseanna Beck created the Criss Cross Crochet Shells Throw for I Like Crochet). Roseanna crocheted and knitted since she was 7 and designed crochet patterns for books and magazines for 20 years. She really knew her stuff, so you can be sure this pattern will be easy to follow and work up beautifully.
