Oh wow, I love the look of this Laurel Green Shells Throw! The long dtr shells look great. I have never done 9 dtr's in one stitch before and wonder how loose I should crochet? I so have to try it one. I like the greens and white colors together, they so remind me of a spring day. I also like that the written pattern is right here on this page and that there is a print tab at top next to the save tab. Thanks! I have printed this one and will be making it. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.
