Because this Rustic Shells and Stripes Throw uses chunky weight yarn, you'll find that this crochet throw pattern works up quickly. You can use these rich colors to make a charming and old-fashioned blanket or choose several colors of your choice to make it your own. Because of the thin and thick striped pattern, many color combinations would look amazing. You will use the shell stitch for this crochet idea, which gives this throw a slightly delicate style that everyone who sees it will love immediately.

There are so many variations for a shell stitch...I don't see where the description of the shell stitch for this pattern is given.

I was expecting a lighter color combination for this Rustic Shells and Stripes Throw as I am used to the light color of shells in the seashore in my hometown. I am not very much delighted of the dark color scheme but who cares, some people like this project s o much. So go ahead, fellow crocheter who like this project can enjoy doing it now.
