Tunisian Shell Blanket is a simple, cozy and addictive project, which uses the Tunisian crochet technique. Each shell element of the blanket 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. You should also know how to work the crab stitch for the edging of your blanket.
