How to Make Crochet Shell Square Stitch

The Crochet Shell Square Stitch is perfect for a variety of projects, from cozy blankets and afghans to stylish cushions and accessories. Its intricate design, created by a combination of shells and squares, adds depth and visual interest to any crochet creation.

This afghan square crochet stitch pattern is a versatile design that can be worked using any thread or yarn. Most yarns have the recommended crochet hook size on the label. But you can play around with different options to get tighter or looser crochet fabric.
