Crochet Lovey Pattern - Lovey Shells and Chevrons - free crochet pattern by Simply Collectible

I was inspired by Red Heart Yarns Baby Hugs to make Lovey Shells and Chevrons mostly because of the softness of the yarn. In working out several stitches with it, I knew I wanted the piece to pop with shadows and contrasting stitches. You must work with this yarn to feel how lovely it is. My favorite part is that it is certified chemical free! That is perfect baby and for those of us with with compromised immune systems. Rest assured that they aren’t just baby colors.

Notes:  Lovey Shells and Chevrons is one piece seamless piece worked flat from the bottom up. Half double crochets at the beginning and ends of rows are worked under both loops while half double crochets within the chevron are worked in the 3rd loop only to create ribbing.  Turning chain does not count as a stitch. Chevron multiples are 12+2. Shell multiples are 6+1. Shell side is slightly wider than the chevron side.
Here is a video How to Crochet Chevron Ribbing – working in the 3rd loop.
