Learning a new crochet stitch or technique is always such fun, don’t you agree?  I am so happy to introduce to to the new post series 'Hook A Stitch', where I will be sharing fun stitches to get you hooking!
To kick off this new series I will be sharing the staggered shells column stitch; a combination of shells and double crochet stitches, making it ideal for a blanket!
Make it
st(s) – stitch(es)
sk –skip
rep – repeat
ch – chain stitch
dc – double crochet
Shell – [4 dc, ch 2, dc]

Chain multiple of 10 sts +8. 

Ch 3 at beg of Row counts as dc.

Row 1: Ch 3, dc in 4th ch from hook, *sk next ch, shell in next ch, sk next 3 chs**, dc in each of the next 5 chs, rep from *across ending at **, dc in each of the last 2 chs, turn.
Row 2: Ch 3, dc in next dc, *shell in next ch-2 sp of next shell, sk next 4 dc**, dc in each of the next 5 dc, rep from * across ending at **, dc in next dc, dc in top of beg ch 3, turn.
Rep Row 2 for pattern.
Hope you all enjoyed this little lesson in the art of crocheting! For more tutorials, head on over to Hook A Stitch on Instagram!
