To me, this shell cluster resembles a crochet cross. It works up quickly with only 1 round including a picot at top and bottom. If stitched using worsted weight yarn, it measures approximately 2" wide by 2.5" high.

Materials and Supplies

Any weight yarn with the appropriate size crochet hook. Our sample was made using worsted weight yarn and a size H (5.0 mm) crochet hook.

ch = chain
dc = double crochet
rep = repeat
