I've come across shell stitch patterns and instructions in a variety of different publications. Shell stitch instructions were included in vintage Peterson's magazines dated 1855, 1858 and 1859, among others.

Don't worry, you won't have to hunt for old crochet instruction manuals at your local antique store; you can learn how to crochet the shell stitch right here on our website, for free.
