Shell Stitch Doll Blanket

Image of Shell Stitch Doll Blanket Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This blanket is made up of a stitch pattern found in Encyclopedia of 300 Crochet Patterns Stitches and Designs on page 86 #14. You can make this blanket all one color but I thought it would be more interesting with 3 complimentary colors. This doll blanket would also be great as a preemie blanket if made with a super soft yarn.
