The shell stitch is a stitch pattern in crochet that can be worked in a variety of different ways. It has an appearance similar to the shape of a seashell, which is why it's also called the “shell” stitch.

The shell stitch is often used in patterns to create a dimensional, textured look. It's also great for blankets and hats!

One of the most common ways you might see shell stitch used is as a border. Adding this stitching on an edge can transform it into something special and unique for your interior design project.
