Shell Stitch Crochet Patterns

Shell stitches are an easy way to add some texture and interest to any crochet project. This type of crochet stitch is made by working 3 or more stitches into the same space (or a chain & stitch) to create a fan or shell look. This type of stitch is a very beginner-friendly technique, and the finished product looks much more complicated than it was really to make.
