Crochet with Aabhar – Lacy Shell Stitch

Lacy Shell Crochet Stitch is another variation of the classic Peacock Fan Stitch. The pattern looks like there are repeating ‘tree’ motifs arranged in a brick layout.

Unlike the classic Peacock Fan Stitch, this one is more detailed and a little more complex. The pattern uses dc2tog and dc3tog to decrease crochet stitches along with the basic stitches. Lacy Shell Crochet Stitch is a 10-stitch repeat that is worked over 6 rows to complete a motif.

Lacy Shell Stitch will work beautifully on projects like a lacy scarf, shawls, or summer wraps. It creates a lightweight fabric with a good drape. We recommend using a lace-weight yarn as it will look best with thin yarns.
