Timeless Lacy Shell Crochet Blanket

"This timeless lacy shell crochet blanket is simple but has an elegant touch. Alternating the colored yarn with white really helps make this throw lovely. I must admit, this is a pattern I fell in love with so much that I made two right away. This pattern size is wonderful for a small throw or blanket. However, it would be an heirloom crochet project as a larger afghan. The pattern is a repeat of rows 2-5. It is ideal to end with the stitch pattern on row 3 as this will provide a nice foundation to even out the work on the next row. There are just a few special stitches; the v-stitch, and the shell stitch. The edge consists of the single crochet and double crochet. In total, just a bit shy of five skeins were used for this baby blanket. "

Another blanket to make for my baby gift stash . I make baby blankets to keep on hand for showers, or a special baby that I know the family of. I love this one and will have to get the recommended yarn as it is so shimmery!
