Learn to Crochet - Single Crochet Shells in Tiramisu Baby Blanket

Merry, of crocheted ABC Blanket fame, recently shared with me a pattern she had found for the Tiramisu Baby Blanket because she was having a bit of trouble with keeping the edges straight.

Here is a picture of the sample I crocheted using 3 colors. This shows off the single crochet shells very nicely, and in the video below, it also makes seeing the individual rows much easier.

Hopefully this video will help Merry and others in crocheting this very pretty blanket. See what you think...

I think this stitch would also make a very cozy and colorful scarf, stitched either long ways or across the short way. I can also imagine that this stitch crocheted using bulky weight yarn and a very large hook would work up quickly into a full size afghan.

Single Crochet ShellsEither solid or multi-color, the stitch used in the Tiramisu Baby Blanket is easy to do and very versatile. It reminds me a little bit of the Ripple Stitch and the Woven Stitch, both of which I have used for full size afghans, baby blankets, and crocheted scarves.

Happy Stitching!

  • You have one of the most helpful blogs. Thanks. I've bookmarked this to review once I get back from my trip. I'm dying to start something new...after 12+ single crochet dishcloths!

  • Hey Mary Grace...love the video! I actually finished my Tirimasu blanket, while on vacation...now I'm doing the border...my edges are nice and straight...one thing I might add that really helped me, was to count my stitches on each row to make sure I had 90 stitches...it's very easy to forget to do that second single crochet...thus coming up short at the end of the row!
    God Bless You,
    Merry :)

  • I am really fascinated by this style crochet - I'm going to bookmark this so I can come back to it when my mind isn't so cluttered ... you know, in 20 years or so! ;-)
