Enchanted Gingerbread Dreams Pillow

This charming pillow is brought to life through a combination of intricate crochet techniques, resulting in a stunningly realistic appearance. The attention to detail is evident in every aspect of this design. A beautifully crafted row of shell stitches adorns the bottom edge of the roof, providing an enchanting finishing touch. Surface slip stitch stripes add depth and character, accentuating the roof and creating the illusion of charming windows. The eave is cleverly fashioned to resemble a peppermint stick, while the door is adorned with a wreath, capturing the quintessential holiday spirit. Additionally, gumdrop appliqués are crocheted separately and lovingly attached to the finished piece, adding a sweet finishing touch.

How to Crochet the Shell Stitch

The shell stitch is a must-learn for every crocheter as it is one of the easiest ways to create a lace-like openwork fabric with crochet. The shell stitch probably gets it’s name from the shape of this stitch being similar to that of a scallop shell that you’d find on the beach. It’s fitting that, this stitch tends to make breezy and delicate designs that are perfect for letting that ocean air sweep you away.
