Make groups of double crochets = shells in the 3rd and 6th rows and also single crochets in the 4th and 7th row in chain sts of the previous row. Make 1st-8th rows x once, repeat 3rd-8th rows.
Replaced pattern of shells B: the quantity of chain sts is multiple 12 + 9 + 3 chain sts increase. Work in the same way, as replaced shells pattern A, but due to the scheme B.
Stitches control: 2 pattern repeats x 9 rows of replaced shells = 13 x 10 cm.
