Graceful Shells Throw Free Crochet Pattern

This is such a popular stitch pattern for me. I’ve made a shawl and a throw with it. Just gorgeous. Inspired by the solid color throws seen in current home decor magazines, this beautiful lace throw is perfect for any decorating style. This is included in my series, Romantic Lace Throws.
