Learn how to crochet the vintage shell stitch! Sponsored by our friends at I Like Crochet, this class teaches a charming alternative to the classic shell.

Do you love the look of the shell stitch in your crochet patterns? The vintage version is a unique variation that shines when you change colors every row. In this class you'll learn how to do the treble crochet stitch, which is the building block for these pretty shells. Add a small border to your finished piece and you'll be able to make a coaster, dishcloth, or blanket with the skills learned in this class.
