Crochet Shell Stitch Baby Blanket

Lion Brand® Lion® Organic Cotton

GAUGE:

13 sts + 7 1/2 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Reviewed by melissa on 2014-03-21 *****
I loved the finish product that it was darker on one side and lighter on the other. I made mine in blue tones. For all those who don't like to change colors because of the weaving in the ends just bring the yarns ur not using up the sides of the pattern that's what I did.
