~ rippling shells ~


Materials:
- 4-ply worsted weight acrylic
- J hook

Notes: 
- the ch 2 at the beginning of Rnds 1, 2 and 3 do not count as a st
- beginning shell = (ch 3, dc, ch 2, 2 dc)
- shell = (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc)
- v-st = (dc, ch 2, dc)

Directions:
Rnd 1:  Ch 3, work 12 dc in the 3rd ch from the hook.  Join with a sl st to 1st dc.  (12 dc)

Rnd 2:  Ch 2, 2 dc in same dc as the joining st, 2 dc in each dc around.  Join as before.  (24 dc)

Rnd 3:  Ch 2, 2 dc in same dc as the joining st, dc in next dc.  *2 dc in next dc, dc in next dc.  Repeat from * around.  Join as before.  (36 dc)  

Rnd 4:  Ch 1, sc in same dc as the joining st, sc in next dc.  *ch 2, sc in each of the next 2 dc.  Repeat from * around.  Join with a sl st to the 1st sc.

  
Rnd 5:  Sl st into next sc, sl st into ch-2 space, work beginning shell in same ch-2 space,  v-st in next ch-2 space.  *shell in next ch-2 space, v-st in next ch-2 space.  Repeat from * around.  Join with a sl st to top of beginning ch 3.  

Rnd 6:  Sl st into next dc, sl st into ch-2 space of shell, shell in next v-st.  *shell in next shell, shell in next v-st.  Repeat from * around.  Join as before.

Rnd 7:  Sl st into next dc, ch 3, shell in ch-2 space, dc in next dc, skip next 3 dc, shell in next shell, skip next 3 dc.  *dc in next dc, shell in ch-2 space, dc in next dc, skip next 3 dc, shell in next shell, skip next 3 dc.  Repeat from * around.  Join as before.

Rnd 8:  Sl st into next dc, ch 3, dc in next dc, shell in ch-2 space, dc into next 2 dc, skip next 3 dc, shell in next shell, skip next 3 dc.  *dc in next 2 dc, shell in ch-2 space, dc in next 2 dc, skip next 3 dc, shell in next shell, skip next 3 dc.  Repeat from * around.  Join as before.

Repeat Rnd 8 increasing the number of dc by 1 on the sides of the ripple points on each succeeding Rnd.  The shell points will remain shells.

  2. Debi~ You are so patient & kind to write out the patterns for us. Thank you very much. The colors are beautiful on this. This is such a wonderful time to crochet, too! Grey, overcast days....leaves blowing around....sitting by the window, crocheting. I dream about this in the heat of July. It's finally here!

  11. I am having trouble with Rnd 7 - do we really skip the v stitch completely to work in the next shell stitch? it pulls awkwardly and I know am doing something wrong. Please help: Sl st into next dc, ch 3, shell in ch-2 space, dc in next dc, skip next 3 dc, shell in next shell, skip next 3 dc. *dc in next dc, shell in ch-2 space, dc in next dc, skip next 3 dc, shell in next shell, skip next 3 dc. Repeat from * around. Join as before.

    1. Hi Teresa. The 3 stitches that you will skip include the 2 stitches of the shell from the previous round and the 1st dc of the dc points. When you get to the other side of the dc points, you will skip the last dc and the 2 dc of the shell from the previous round. There are no v-sts on the 7th round. You will work a shell in the shell stitches and then in the ch-2 spaces of the dc points, you will work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc).

    1. Hi Jackie. I'm sorry, but I did not weigh the amount of yarn I used for this blanket. I have no idea why I didn't. Sorry.
