Conch Shell Crochet Pattern C2C Square Details

This conch shell crochet square another great addition to your Sea Life C2C Throw series. Frankly, I would have never thought to include shells in my Sea Life Blanket but I had so many people suggest it on Instagram I knew shells had to be included!

I used the mini-hdc c2c crochet technique for this square and I ended up with a 9″ x 9″ square. You could certainly choose to use the standard dc technique which would give you a larger square. However, at 9″x 9″ this would be the perfect size for a whimsical summer themed dish cloth, too!

I used Yarnspirations’ Caron Simply Soft yarn for my squares – I love how soft this yarn is which is perfect for blankets. However, you could certainly substitute your favorite medium worsted #4 weight yarn to get a similar result.
