It’s Fast, Easy and Beautiful! Introducing the crochet shell and post stitch pattern. With warmer weather, I’m looking for patterns that will not be quite as heavy and warm but still look beautiful. This stitch is ideal for those warmer days. I’ve used this pattern to make lighter weight baby blankets using a weight 3 yarn of even baby weight yarn. The pattern is so easy to make and works up very quickly. I also like the fact that after your first row you can work this pattern while watching tv, or listening to music. Once your first row is done there really isn’t any counting so it’s perfect for crocheting on the go.
You can use any weight yarn and hook size as long as they are appropriate for each other. Yarn labels will give you a suggested hook size for each weight yarn. (I know they do in the USA, not sure about other countries).
