Notes

shell pattern. each color is 15 shell stitches in length. i worked through a full color sequence (30 shells across and a J hook). mine came out to 65” wide. individual tension may vary.

inspired by brenda-leigh’s post- team spirit pillow cover in shell stitch.

i made my blanket to shift over by one shell.

i think Marly C Bird has the best description of the concept of planned pooling in her youtube tutorials. https://youtu.be/sKSCPl7w6sA
once you understand how it works, it works out pretty easy.

i didn’t count starting chains. it’s more about the number of stitches in each color. this one in particular is 15 shell stitches in each color (depending on my tension- yours may vary).

tips:
1) it is 2 colors with the exact same length.
note: even numbered rows will start and end with 3dc in the top of the sc from the row before. this 3d counts as one shell.
2) i didn’t use different size hooks. i used a J hook throughout, but i changed my tension the entire time making sure that i tightened and loosened tension to ensure there were 15 shells in each color. this is especially useful on the odd rows.

as of 10/29/17- i have completed 5 skeins and had to go up a hook size due to the length difference in the skein.

8 skeins measures 58” wide by 42” tall.
