Pattern Description:

Build-A-Shell BORDER baby blanket/afghan is FOURTH in a SERIES of new baby blankets designed specifically for BEGINNER crocheters OR baby photography props!

You are going to love the way this blanket works up for baby. The shell border is so beautiful and is really fun to crochet. The design works up quickly and then the finishing begins with the gorgeous shell border.

The blanket stitch pattern and the border stitch pattern is actually my most favorite stitch combination to crochet!

This blanket/afghan is also great for NEW BABY!

To crochet this blanket, you must be familiar with basic crochet stitches, ch, sl st, sc, dc and you will also be using the front post double crochet (fpdc) for the border.

The fpdc stitch is explained and also a link to a video is given in the pattern. If you know how to do the fpdc OR you have just learned, this border will be great practice for you to perfect your stitches!

Sample afghan measures 29 inches X 30 inches, which is a a big larger than our other baby afghans, but is also a PERFECT SIZE to swaddle baby for warmth and comfort, use in the car seat or stroller or it makes a wonderful prop for photographers!

This pattern also works up quickly for last minute baby shower gifts!

My instructions are very well written and very easy to follow!
