Classically Simple Crochet Shell Blanket

"This classically simple crochet shell blanket is made in a solid tan color yarn. The crochet stitch pattern paired with the yarn color just give this afghan an heirloom quality look and feel. The pattern is a four row repeat, which provides a bit of variety in your crochet project. For me, if you are going to be working on this for a little bit, it is nice to have some different crochet stitches every few rows. This pattern uses the double crochet and single crochet stitches. Therefore, it is easy to master."
