12 Days of Christmas: Lace Shell Bookmark – FREE Written Crochet Pattern
We are launching our 12 Days of Christmas crafts with a beautiful handmade bookmark. Do you know someone who loves to read? For all the book lovers in your life, you can make this beautiful Shell Stitch Lace Bookmarker. Pair this with a best seller book and you will be sure to awe the most distinguished book enthusiast on your list!


My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.
