Materials You'll Need:

Before we dive into the world of 3 D shell stitches and shawl crafting, let's gather the materials you'll need for this project:

  1. Yarn: Choose a yarn in your preferred color and weight. Light to medium-weight yarns work well for shawls, offering the right balance of warmth and drape.

  2. Crochet Hook: Select an appropriate crochet hook size that complements your chosen yarn. Typically, a hook in the range of 4mm to 6mm is suitable for shawl-making. My personal advice - use crochet one size bigger than it is recommended for your choosen yarn.

  3. Scissors: A good pair of scissors is essential for cleanly cutting your yarn.

  4. Yarn Needle: You'll need a yarn needle for weaving in ends and finishing your shawl.

Step 1:

Make chains as many as you want, YES, You don't need to count stitches! 

After finishing Step 1, if chain is to long, do this:
