Free Pattern: Reversible Shell Baby Blanket

Vintage Crochet

I posted a picture of this very vintage looking crochet baby afghan that Jeanette was working on on the blog a while ago. Since then I have been bombarded with requests for the pattern. So here you go! The PDF is below, I hope that many of you will make it an enjoy it very much! We made ours with Karabella Lace Merino yarn and would be happy to sell you some if you need.

  1. I just found your site while searching for reversible baby blankets. The one shown is beautiful. I crochet baby blankets for women’s shelters, daycare centers and homes. I’m glad I found your site.

  2. Could you please send me the directions on how to do the reversible afgan???????? Please my printer is not working as it prints bunches pf pages I found on e mail it does not do this

  3. Beginning with my first child I made this blanket for every baby born in our family, as well as for some friends. We are now expecting our first great-grandchild and guess what? I can’t find the pattern. I am so happy I found it again. Thank you very much.

  4. I have been looking for this pattern for over 30 years. It was made by a dear friend who is no longer with us for my son who is now 32 years old. I have searched the web and asked dozens of crochet friends and no one has ever seen this pattern. Thank you so very much for sharing. I have printed several copies so that I do not lose this pattern.

  5. Hi,
    I would love to try this reversible blanket but I can’t open it. You could put a real smile on my face by sending it to me! Thanks.

  6. I am having trouble understanding this pattern. My shell stitches seem to look like their own row instead of front and back. Can anyone help me understand what I am doing wrong? Thanks

  7. Thankyou so much for sharing your talent and your generosity with your free pattern. It is just beautiful. What awesome work that you do.

  8. I cannot open the file for the Reversible Shell Baby Blanket. Would you please send the instructions to me. My daughter loves vintage and is expecting her first baby very soon.
    Thank you very much.

  9. Love this pattern. It looks like the one my grandmother made for my son 40 years ago. Can’t get it to open, either. Would love an email with instructions as well. Thanks for much.

  10. i learned this pattern 45 years ago and is the only one i love to do, it’s simple to do and you can’t go wrong doing this one … and besides it’s beautiful and get’s a lot of compliments.. and someone always wants to buy them from me when they are done… i doubled the the pattern and made one for my bed, a little time consuming but the end results are beautiful,I never need another blanket for my bed..it’s warm but it never makes you feel hot…

  11. Please e-mail this pattern to me. I have tons of yarn to use up and shells are the first thing I was taught to crochet at the age of ten. A friend taught me “mile a minute” lace–all shells. Thank you.

  12. I had this pattern years ago and made several for friends. My first Grandaughter is due in March and I wanted to make one for her but could not find my pattern. Thank you so much for sharing. Could you please email it to me along with the picture. My email is : marilynj541@msn.com.

  13. Have you ever made this pattern in one color? Would it still work? I recently bought several skeins of one color to make a blanket and I came across your pattern and it looks very interesting.

    Thanks,

  14. Hi Im just setting out on my crochet journey as I am expecting twins, I love this pattern and I am just wondering what sort of sized hook I will need? Any advice welcome. Lou

  18. HI!!!
    JUST FOUND YOUR SITE AND THE PATTERN I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR. I MADE THIS BLANKET FOR A DEAR FRIEND’S BABY BOY YEARS AND YEARS AGO.
    NOW HE IS GOING TO BE AN UNCLE AND I WANTED TO GIVE HIS SISTER';S BABY THE SAME BLANKET…BECAUSE NUMBER ONE: IT IS EASY TO MAKE, NUMBER TWO: IT LOOKS MUCH MORE COMPLICATED TO MAKE THAN IT REALLY IS TO MAKE, NUMBER THREE: IT ISN’T TERRIBLY HEAVY, BUT STILL PLENTY WARM, AND THE MOST IMPORTANT IT IS DROP-DEAD GORGEOUS.
    I DON’T HAVE A PRINTER. WOULD YOU MIND SENDING IT TO ME?? HOPE NOT!!!!!
    THANKS AND MAY YOU RECEIVE DOUBLE WHAT YOU WISH FOR OTHERS,
    Louise

  19. I made this for my Granddaughter 32 years ago, and somehow lost the pattern. She is now expecting a baby so I can not begin to tell you how excited I was to find this pattern again.Thank You!!

  20. I was wondering if this beautiful pattern can be made with worsted weight yarn and if so, what are the multiples for the starting chain? I would love to make a throw-sized version.

  21. Love the look, would fit perfect for a great grand daughter that’s on the way. Could you please email it to me.
    thank you so much. Lora

  22. I would very much like to have the pattern to the reversible shell baby blanket, but I can not get it to download for some reason, after several attempts. I wonder if you could help me with this?

  23. I make baby blankets for St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Iowa City, IA as Baptism gifts from the Prayer Shawl Ministry group I started. I would love if you could send me the pattern also as I cannot open it. Thank you for your generous sharing heart!
