Awhile back, it occurred to me that perhaps my entire shell stitch projects could be almost indistinguisable from their edgings. Once the revelation hit, this idea seemed like a no-brainer: I should try using the shell stitches mirror-imaged so that each half of the project looks exactly like the other half.
To expand on the insights I had when I was working these designs, I also wrote out a tutorial teaching you what I've learned about dividing yarn for symmetrical crochet projects.
I'm excited to share all these ideas, and the corresponding free patterns, with you. I hope you'll find them interesting, and enjoyable to either ponder, or work on.
