Chart pattern 176 –


This stitch is done in multiples of 8 + 2


Once you chained your multiples to you desired width continue to row 1.



Row 1

sc into 2nd ch from hook. * Ch 3, skip 3 sts, sc in next. * repeat for row. Sc in last st of row. Ch 3 and turn.


Row 2

The fans are made all at once, by that I mean you will be turning your work back and forth as you make the fan, they are not made in rows.


Step 1

Put 4 double crochets into the first sc, find your next sc over and sc to anchor your shell. Ch 3 and turn your work.


Step 2

now work 1 DC into the sc. Dc 2 in the next 4 double crochet. Giving you 10 DC’s total. Ch 3 and turn


Step 3

sc in 2nd dc of row, * ch 3, skip 1 DC and sc into the next * do this total of 5 times. End by single crocheting into the top of the ch 3. Then sc into the next sc to anchor down your shell.


-And this will end your fan.


Now start your next fan by chaining 3 and repeating with Step 1. When you’ve single crocheted into your last sc of the row, ch 8 and turn.


Row 3

Working in your ch 3 spaces at the top of your shells, you will be skipping the first 2 ch 3 spaces and * Double crocheting in the 3rd (middle) ch 3 space. Ch 3 and skip the next ch 3 space and SC into the last ch 3 space. Ch 3 * repeat for row. You should end your row by single crocheting into the last ch 3 space. Ch 3 and turn.


Repeat rows 2 & 3

About the Author:

Hi I'm Candy from Meladora's Creations and I design crochet patterns and film them for my YouTube channel. I want to start by saying, I am by no means a professional teacher. I figure things out as I go along and I love playing with yarn! This is how I have discovered new crochet stitches. I am a mother of two and I live in Israel presently, but I was born and raised in Oklahoma. I met a man on an online game and became friends and through time we fell in love and I came out here to Israel to be together. From lack of knowing how to speak Hebrew, I had to find a way to help take care of our two kids, so after sharing my crochet projects online and being asked to do a tutorial on one of them, I finally broke down and tried it.
