What is this blanket pattern?
February 21, 2014 5:25 PM   Subscribe

Crochet-filter: I love the pattern of this baby blanket: link 1 , link 2, and would very much like to make a sofa throw size of this. I've looked on Revelry and cannot find the pattern.

Also, I'm a relatively new crocheter, and am not fluent in patternese. So a more basic explanation or a video would be even better.

....You're sure that's crochet? Forgive my doubt, but that looks a bit more like knitting to my eyes....

I think every afghan my granny ever crocheted was in that stitch pattern. It looks very similar to Sideway Shell Baby Afghan without as thick an edging as a lot of the examples use. It might be using a ch-3 instead of a ch-2 as the pattern suggests, though.

(And yeah, totally crochet.)

Thank you! I think I even may have looked at this one, but the photos at the top weren't sufficiently detailed. Now I just have to decipher what this pattern says to do.

Looking it over again, I'm pretty sure it's a slanted shell stitch with 3 double crochet stitches, not two: try this pattern (has chart and video tutorial, too!)

Here's another similar one: Build-a-shell afghan
