Hi, I'm Natanya Nielsen from Saratoga Springs, talking about crochet basics. Today we're going to talk about the shell stitch of crochet. To do the shell stitch, we're going to come back to our foundation product. We're going to chain three, and turn our project. From here, we are going to skip this first hole, and in the second hole that you see, we will do four double crochets. All in the same hole. So you'll wrap your yarn around, and go through the same hole four different times with the double crochet stitch. After you do your four stitches, you are going to skip the next three holes. One, two, three. In the fourth, you'll repeat the four double crochets in the same hole. Again, you will skip the next three stitches, and repeat. This will get your shell stitch for your project.
