After admiring quilts made in the clamshell pattern, I wanted to recreate the same effect in crochet and I love how it turned out. It’s a great pattern for big blankets, baby blankets, cushions and lots more besides.

This is a photo tutorial style pattern for a stitch pattern only.

Some concentration required to keep track of stitch count and some special stitches however clear photos are given.
