free crochet patterns, alternating shells, how to crochet, fans,

Hello Week #4 of Crochet Vintage


HOW did you go with crocheting last week's SUMMER Arches stitch pattern?  Did you enjoy yourself and have some fun with Week #3 ?  I sure do hope you had fun changing colours and playing with the stitch pattern, it is a fun and easy stitch which could easily be used anywhere a lacy open pattern is needed.

This week #4, I have another super easy crochet stitch pattern for you from my vintage 1970's stitch patterns collection.  I must admit I enjoy this week's stitch ALTERNATING Shells even more than last week's Summer Arches and I hope you do too.

This ALTERNATING SHELLS crochet stitch pattern is really very simple, and of course once again you can change colour in every row if you wish.
