How to Crochet a Wavy Shell Stitch Border Edging – for a Blanket Shawl or Scarf


Hi I’m Donna Wolfe from naztazia.com Today I’ll show you how to crochet a wavy shell stitch border edging for blankets, scarves,
shawls, and more. It’s a multiple of four stitches along one edge so you can have
16 stitches 20, 40, 80, etc. If you want to go around the entire blanket add one
more stitch to each corner. I like to make a single crochet border first
around the blanket ensuring that each corner has one extra stitch in it. For
this sample I’m using worsted weight yarn and a size G hook. To begin chain
three. That counts as one double crochet. Next make 1 double crochet in each of
the next 3 stitches. 2 & 3. Then chain 4. Hold the initial chain 3 like this and
make a slip stitch on top of it. This forms a ring. Chain one. Next make seven double crochet stitches in this ring. One two three four five six and seven. As we begin the
second shell this one will be repeated throughout the edging. Over the next four
stitches make 1 double crochet in each. One, two three, and four. Chain 4. Reach towards the back. This time we’re going to enter our hook
inside the seven double crochet ring and come right out next to it. Then make a
slip stitch. Next chain 1 and make 7 double crochet stitches in that ring. 1 2
3 four, five, six, and seven. And over the next four stitches make 1
double crochet in each. One, two, three, and four. You can see what this looks like now. To complete this third shell chain four. Push down the shell and slip stitch in
the back like this. Chain 1 and do seven double crochet
stitches in that ring. And seven. Over the next four stitches
make one double crochet. One, two, three, and four. Continue this across. When you
get to the end it’s time to turn the corner. For the corners just make one
double crochet in that corner instead of the four double crochet stitches that we
normally do. Then chain four as we did before and slip stitch as before. Chain one and do the seven double
crochet stitches all in the ring as we did before. Now along this new side make one double crochet stitch in each of the next four stitches as we did on the first side. So for the rest of the second side just
do what we did for the first side. You can see what the sides and corner look
like. And that’s how I crochet the wavy shell
stitch border edging.

  4. If possible, could you make a stitch pattern inspired by cobra? Not a plush. But an actual cobra stitch pattern. I bought a pattern of it online but I can't seem make it out. I would love a video tutorial of it.

  5. I like the way you treated the corner. I’ve watched other videos and there technique was a bit more challenging. Yours is very simple and looks just as great thanks
