Fairy Shell Stitch (Modified Version)

Maria Infinity Scarf Using My Modified Version of the Fairy Shell Stitch

If you are looking for a beautiful crochet stitch, the Fairy Shell Stitch is gorgeous!  I had an order for a scarf (pattern for the above picture coming soon!) & my customer had special requests regarding her order….so I took the opportunity to create a new pattern & to modify a gorgeous stitch!

The Fairy Shell Stitch would be considered an Intermediate Level crochet stitch. It uses the Shell Stitch (see below) which I also modified.    Get your yarn & crochet hook & let’s begin!

For the Modified Fairy Shell Stitch, your beginning chain count will need to be divisible by 6.  Add 4 for the beginning chain.  For example:  We are going to do a practice swatch.  You will chain 64.  (6 x 10 = 60 + 4).

The best way to remember the stitch pattern beginning in Row 4:

  • [SC, CH 2, SC] in the CH 1 SP of Shell ST from previous row.
  • Shell ST [2 DC, CH 1, 2 DC] in CH 2 SP of [SC, CH 2, SC] from previous row.
  • Odd number rows = 1 DC beginning of row
  • Even number rows = 2 DC beginning of row

SPECIAL STITCHES:

  • Shell Stitch – In the same stitch [2 DC, CH 1, 2DC]

Ch 64.
