Crochet: "Shell-ish" Pattern for Blanket

Hi there,

I found a picture of a lovely pattern in Internet, but I had to search and search to find an English ver. of it, then I started to make it with my own,,,  The Blanket as designed by a French Crocheter called Patty, and her website can be found here: http://pattycrochete/canalblog.com/
But I made a little bid change of the patter. I used BACK LOOPS ONLY for each rows. (I did not use Front Loops),




You will find my Diagram, Written Tutorial and my pictures on below.

chain 2 , skip 3 st. then 5DC in the next st.   *
repeat *  until last 2 st. then 3DC and 1DC in the turning chain.
Chain 3, and TURN

2 DC in the next st,
2 DC in the next st,
1 DC in the next st,

2 DC ,
2DC,
1DC,(into the turning chain from previous round)
chain 3, TURN

Row 4: BACK LOOPS ONLY
1DC, 2DC,  1DC, 2DC, 1DC,
* now in to the next fan: 1DC, 2DC,  1DC, 2DC, 1DC, 2DC,  1DC, 2DC, 1DC  *

  1. Love the pattern and plan on making it. However, can you tell me the pattern multiple? Is it 13 + 2? I'm not quite sure how you figured your chain. If I read chart correctly, which I'm not good at, I believe it shows a repeat pattern of 13 stitches and you plan on 9 repeats which would be the 13 x 9 = 117 but not understanding the ch 2 + 17 after that. Hope this makes sense and thanks in advance for your help. Again a beautiful pattern.

    1. Thanks Oya for the quick reply but I wanted to make the blanket about 32 x 32 or 30 x 30 so was trying to figure out the pattern multiples. I'll start with the 136 chains and just add 13 stitches for each additional repeat I need. Thanks again for your help and quick reply. Continued success with your blog. Have a great day..Judy :)
