I love this solid shell stitch, I have used it for many of my projects, it is a close together stitch which makes it an ideal design for baby items, there is less chance of little fingers getting caught in the yarn.
It can also be used for dishcloths, place mats, blankets etc. play with your colors to get a good combination, I have used 3 different shades but you can easily use more or less if you wish.
Make this slanting shells cowl as a treat to yourself to ward off the last few weeks of Winter.
It is a great replacement for a scarf, made in a worsted weight yarn with a leaning shell design, wear it loose around your neck for style or folded over for warmth.
I have crocheted it in a pretty lilac color, but it would look nice in dark colors too.

This Floppy sun hat is a quick 24 row design, the stitch pattern is part of
the lazy daisy collection, I am looking forward to some warmer days as
this hat is a pick up, put on and go pattern, it can be crocheted in one
color or it will look just a nice in a variegated yarn.
