Tunisian Shell Shawl is a quick and glamorous project, which uses the Tunisian crochet technique. Each shell element of the shawl is small enough to place all of your stitches on a regular crochet hook.

The pattern assumes basic familiarity with Tunisian crochet, specifically how each row is worked as two separate passes and how to work the Tunisian simple stitch. Detailed instructions and a picture tutorial for the first two rows are included.
