Shell stitch crochet is very beginner-friendly and looks very delicate and feminine. That is why all variations of Emmy blankets are the most-loved pattern of SWD.

Both the body and border of the Emmy blanket are crocheted in a lacy shell stitch. In the video below you will find a full step-by-step tutorial with detailed explanations.

For the video tutorial below, I used chunky yarn – Navy yarn by Adriafil and a 7 mm (metric size) hook.

Below you will find the gallery showing blankets made with a lacy shell stitch.

I designed three versions of this blanket – a baby blanket you can make in any chunk or Aran weight yarn – wool, cotton, or fiber mix.

And for all lovers of modern and “big” cozy blankets, a super bulky version will make an ideal family blanket for winter. It will add a boho and comfortable vibe to any room or photo shoot set.

Slide the images to see both blankets. Don’t they look stunning? And made in any yarn they are very cozy and soft. The detailed crochet pattern for both blankets you can find here.

I would love to see what projects you’ll do using this elegant stitch. Feel free to share your beautiful work by tagging @sofieswhitedesigns or @sofiewhiteblog on Instagram.

Happy making:)
