Diamond Shells Lace - Learn to Crochet


The Diamond Shells Lace Stitch is such a beautiful crochet lace that is light and airy, plus it works up very quickly! It uses only a few stitches and a four row repeat. Below is the written directions, as well as the link to the video tutorial. If you enjoy this, please consider subscribing to my newsletter and my YouTube channel.
