everybody thanks for joining me today we're going to learn a new stitch pattern and it's a beautiful one this is called the Snapdragon shells pattern and what you'll need to do is chain in multiples of seven once you have that done you'll add six to your base chain so what I did is three multiples of seven that gave me 21 so then I added six so I have 27 total and just a for weight yarn and a five millimeter hook is what I'm using so what we're going to do is build our foundation row first and you want to double crochet in the fourth from your hook and then what you're going to do is double crochet in the next chain okay then you're going to skip two stitches or two chains and then you're going to do five double crochets show in the next stitch so skip two and work a shell of five doubles in the next one two three four and five you want to skip two and double crochet in the next two so one two one to


[98.95]
all right so now what you're going to do is work that across so you want to skip the next two chains and work a shell in the next so five doubles in the next one two three four and five you're going to skip two and double crochet in the next two


[141.36]
okay and again you'll skip to work your shell in the next so there's one two three four and five


[160.32]
now you're going to skip two and you're going to double crochet into the lat are the next two and then you'll also double crochet into the last chain so that will be three double crochet in the end okay so that's what we will have for our foundation row so now you want to turn and for Row one we're going to chain up three which is going to count as a double crochet you'll skip the first double crochet and what you want to do is a five double crochet between the next two double crochet so you're skipping this one and in-between here you're going to work a shell one two three four and five okay and now what you want to do is double crochet in the space before and double crochets in the space after the center double crochet of the next shell so here's your Center double crochet you have five you want to find your Center one and you're going to work in the spaces again so double crochet in that space before and double crochet in the space after the center double crochet okay so very simple you find the third double crochet of the shell and work in the space before and the space after okay and now you want to double crochet between the next two double crochet so you're going to make actually you're going to make a shell five double crochet right here so five doubles in the space one two three four and five and again find your middle double crochet of that next she'll work in the space work a double crochet in that space before this stitch and in the space after and you're working that across so now in the next two double crochet that stand alone you want to work a shell in between the two of those one two three four five okay and on our last shell you're going to find the third one and work in the space before with a double and the space after with a double and now what you want to do is you're going to do five double crochet which is your shell between the next two or the last two here so one two three four and five and now you want to double crochet into the top of that turning chain okay and that's what we're going to have for the end of round one now Row two you'll chain up three and that is a double crochet and now you're going to double crochet in the space before and after the center double crochet of the next Shell again find that third one work in the space before in the space after then you want to do your shell between the next two double crochet of this group the next two double crochet work that shell of five doubles three four and five okay now you're going to work that across so your next Shell here find the middle double crochet and work a double crochet before it and after it and then you're going to make your next Shell between the next two double crochet so there's two three four five all right now our next Shell find that third one and work in front and back of that third stitch with a double crochet and now make your next Shell in between the next two double crochet one two

three four and five all right and here at the last she'll find the third double crochet again and double crochet before it and after it and then you're going to double into the turn and chain and now for the remainder of this stitch pattern you're just going to repeat rows 1 and row two and you're just going to alternate and that's all there is to it basically the difference between the two rows is the very first start up stitch which is very minor and that's all there is to this beautiful snapdragons shells from the complete photo guide to crochet so this is a very very beautiful pattern this would make a very beautiful cowl pattern or you can work it up into a shell wrap it would make a beautiful babies Afghan again another beautiful stitch to work up so just make this as long as you want it and this one in my opinion I would keep this one in a solid color or if you have a variegated yarn that changes color slowly this would be very beautiful in it as far as those of you that are always asking me about what borders I would do with what stitches I will say that now in this tutorial if I'm working with a stitch like this that is very busy which in other words has a lot going on in the pattern itself not so many different types of stitches but really busy in the texture I usually go for a more simple calm border like either a single crochet maybe a crab stitch maybe a herringbone something that's very simple and in this case with this stitch pattern I would go with a more simple a border for one like this because this is a busy pattern alright so I hope you guys enjoyed this stitch and don't forget to show miss Margaret some love and get her awesome awesomely awesome books she has to offer out there so again enjoy and see you on
