I find with crochet that there are so many new things to learn. I, myself, find that as I learn stitches they become my "new favourites". I love stitches that can add texture to my projects so I really liked the puff stitch when I learned it. That's why I wanted to feature it today. It's really simple to do once you get the hang of it. Follow along with me and we'll get started.
The shell stitch is one of my favourite borders to put around things. Once I made an absolutely beautiful baby blanket and edged it with the shell stitch. Check back to see how it turned out. I just love that it adds an elegant finish to the project and it's so simple to do. If you look at my Ice Queen Hat Pattern you will notice that my crown is made of shell stitches. I also used it on the Baby Blueberry Beanie I made for my friend's new baby. As you can see, I use it frequently.
