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.
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.
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
Can you shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address, and I would be happy to send you one.

Hi there, I was just wondering what type/weight of yarn you used for this afghan? it’s lovely btw.
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.
Oh I just love this blanket Made it many times…Lost the pattern! Thanks for Sharing!
Love this pattern! I’m working on a mint green and white, and it is looking great! Thanks for sharing!
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.
Hei! I just found this pattern but I can’t open it? Is it possible to send it to me? 🙂
I have just emailed it to you.
Hi, just found this beautiful pattern, cannot open it, if possible could you e-mail it to me, it would make the person it is for very happy. Thank You
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.
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
Absolutely beautiful/ The download link for pattern will not work. Is it at all possible to have you email me the pictures as well as the pattern?
Thank you so very much in advance. B Cowell

Thankyou so much for sharing your talent and your generosity with your free pattern. It is just beautiful. What awesome work that you do.
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.
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.
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…
just gorgeous! Thankyou so much for sharing your talent and your generosity with your free pattern. hugs TallGirl
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.
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 : firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
I have a pattern like this one and have been making it for years. It is the one everyone asks me to make.
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

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,
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!!
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.
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
Love this pattern however, PDF will not open could you please email it to me? My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance!
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?
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!
Would very much like to have the pattern for this reversible baby blanket. I just found out that I am going to be a grandma and I would love to make this blanket for the new bundle of joy. My email is email@example.com. Thankyou

HI! I wondered if the Reversible Shell Afghan would be posted on the web. I am so happy to see that it is shared and for free! I had made this very afghan into a blanket for our full bed! This was back in 1976. One side was chocolate brown and the reverse side was beige. I misplaced the pattern over the years and yearned to remake another one! Vola! Here it is! Thank you! Thank you! Thank You! For sharing this beautiful and so easy to make project!

Could you please email me a copy of the pattern and picture please. i would greatly appreciate it. I am working on baby items to send to hospitals and low income families who could use a special gift. i think this is a lovely idea. I think this is beautiful. I am sorry i didn’t know how to do this when my daughters were born, but my grandchildren will be blessed with crocheted items. Thank you!
Could you please send me a picture & directions for the reversible she’ll baby blanket. Thank you
I would love to have this pattern. My sister is having twins and I would love to make then each one
About how many yards of yarn is required for each color? I’m finding skeins in so many different sizes!
The skeins we used were 50 grams and had 125 Meters, I hope this helps.

I have exactly the same blanket made by my aunt 40 years ago, my daughter loved it and used it for 20 years starting on her cot and then used to snuggle under it if cold or unwell. Now used by my grandchildren and still looks good.
This truely is gorgeous. I can’t wait to get going with this pattern. Thanks a lot.
Made this pattern for a baby coat 43 years ago. Made it in soft yellow and white. Mill Loekke
is this pattern in US or UK details
It is US. Thank you!
I made this pattern over 45 years ago. The last time I made it was about 30 years age. now I want to make one for an adult and couldn’t find the pattern. Thanks for the pattern. I don’t know what DK weight yarn means. I always used baby yarn in the past, would 4 ply worsted work for this pattern when used for an adult. I’m also going to make it bigger. About 4 feet wide by 6 feet long.
