Special Stitches
Foundation Double Crochet (Fdc): Chain 3 (I do not count this as a stitch), yo and insert hook into 2nd chain from hook and pull up loop (3 loops on hook), yo and pull through 1 loop creating a chain st, (this is an important step but easy to forget). YO again and pull through first two loops on hook (two loops remaining). YO again and pull through last two loops on hook. This completes one Fdc. To stitch the next fdc, yarn over and insert the hook into the chain made in the 2nd fdc and repeat from.

Beginning dc cluster (Beg dc cl): After initial ch3 at the beginning of the row, yo, insert hook into same st/sp, pull up yarn, yo, pull through 2 loops 2x, yo, pull yarn through all 3 loops.

Double Crochet Cluster (Dc-cl): yo, insert hook into st/sp and pull up yarn, yo, pull yarn through 2 loops 3x, yo, pull yarn through 4 loops.

Double Crochet Cluster Shell (Dc-cl shell): dc-cl, ch1, dc-cl in specified st/sp

Double Crochet Cluster Shell Increase (Dc-cl shell inc): dc-cl, ch1, dc-cl, ch1, dc-cl in the same st/sp.

Pattern Notes

  • Ch3 counts as a stitch.
  • Ch2 does not count as a stitch.
  • Stitch count at the end of each row will be shown as ‘dc-cl shells’ which includes beg dc-cl, dc-cl shell, and dc-cl shell inc.
  • Unless otherwise indicated, place last dc-cl shell or dc-cl shell inc in the last st/sp of row.
  • Place your petite shells in the ch-1 sp of the dc-cl shells in the row below.
  • The beg-cl side of the piece will be a straight edge. The dc-cl shell side will start angling outwards to show an increase.
  • Both panels will be joined together, at the top only, with straight edges lined up to create a neck opening.
  • You can make your neck opening bigger or smaller; just adjust the stitch markers to your liking.
  • There is no right or wrong side to the pattern since both panels are made exactly the same.
