One of the most useful stitches of all times – the shell stitch, and yes, it is one of the stitches i usually use. Only because, it’s one of the few combination stitches i know. And I make full use of this stitch whenever I create my tops.

The picture above depicts the shell stitch being used in a variety of ways:

  • Entire length of a blouse can be made of entirely shell stitches of varying width.
  • As the upper portion of a blouse (width the lower part made of crochet blocks)
  • As a sleeve
  • As fill in for the lower portion of a bolero (with the upper part made of crochet blocks)
