To my surprise, I got quite a bit of interest in my last post showing my easy way of making a granny square!

Yes, there is more to life than cooking, baking and cleaning.

I love to crochet and knit and I love to come up with different patterns for different things.

Having an overabundance of yarn from past projects that mom and I made, I decided to put the leftover Antique Gold that I have from my "Nefertiti" coverlet that mom made and I wanted to use a no-brainer stitch of some sort. I've got a bit of some of the other colors as well which I will incorporate.

This is what my brainstorm looks like – I've got about 16 rows on it right now and when I get to the 21st row I will switch to another color to use up those colors of yarn –

(someday I will learn something about cameras and picture taking – just don't hold your breath waiting – I know me!)

It's a very simple pattern –

multiples of 6 plus 4

row 1 – sc in 2nd ch from hook and each remaining ch – chain 3, turn

row 2 – skip next 4 sc –

in next sc work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) (shell stitch)

*skip next 5 sc

in 6th sc work shell stitch

repeat from * to last sc

dc in last sc

chain 3, turn

row 3 – THIS IS YOUR PATTERN TO CONTINUE WITH THROUGHOUT YOUR WORK

make shell stitch in each ch-2 sp of each shell stitch to turning ch

dc in 3rd ch of turning ch-3

chain 3, turn

That's it!  Easy as pie!
