About a month ago I decided that I wanted to crochet a Christmas gift for my best friend so I started looking for inspiration online. Please forgive me as I cannot remember where I ended up finding my inspiration and if you happen to notice a similarity of this pattern to someone else's please let me know. I would like to give proper recognition where due.
This pattern uses a combination of v stitch and shells by using only a chain and double crochet. I found this to be a fairly easy pattern since the same thing is repeated over and over again.
I used a light worsted weight with a 5.5mm hook. I suspect you could use any weight of yarn with comparable sized hook but just make sure to reduce the number of times you repeat the pattern.
