I have recently found 2 new loves: a vintage shell stitch, and rainbow yarn. I mix the two together to come up with this fabulous rectangular wrap. It just makes me so happy. The wrap is nice and long so you can style it a multitude of ways. You could also make one half as long by just using one skein of yarn and stopping before the second is added on. Either way, you will be the height of style!
So, if you haven’t guessed, I decided to use the Ava yarn from Classic Elite Yarns. It's a beautiful metallic silver yarn; a blend of viscose, wool and polyester. Right off the bat, I had a vision for this particular yarn. And that's how the Simple Shells Light Wrap came into being. This wrap is really delicate and simple to make. It uses the shell stitch which, paired with the subtle metallic yarn, adds a beautiful textural wave to the wrap. It's a lightweight wrap to take on vacations with you or for mild weather. It can also be worn in a variety of ways, so it would be a beautiful holiday gift.
This feeling flirty lacy shell shawl is so light and delicate. Work this crochet pattern from the bottom up. Start with one shell and continue adding a shell to each side as you work up. Since this is made from a yarn cake that has beautiful, variegated colors throughout, there were just two yarn ends to weave in at the end. This lacy shell stitch is achieved by repeating two rows throughout this pattern. One row consists of chain and single crochet stitches. The next row is where the shell is made by working a double crochet in the same stitch five times. I have included photos of the first few rows to help with understanding the pattern. Additionally, there are video tutorials for both left and right hand crocheters. Lastly, there is a chart detailing the row being worked and number of shell stitches per row.

This crochet pattern may look a bit complicated at first glance; however, it uses just a few basic stitches.

I have explained it as well as possible in the free pattern below so if you are a advanced beginner crocheter you may want to try it out. This Sea Shells Shawl pattern is made in one size but in the paid pattern I have included the multiples so you can make it in any size that you would prefer and with your ideal yarn.
