Crochet Tutorial: Textured Oval Shell Stitch

The Textured Oval Shell Stitch is beautiful, and it also happens to be one of the simplest decorative techniques to master. It’s done using stitches that create arch-like shells, which become even more eye-catching when stacked. Pair rows with colorwork and it only gets more gorgeous and bold. Make a quick crochet baby blanket, an easy crochet throw, or a full size crochet afghan blanket in the easy crochet shell stitch pattern.
