August 2004 Stitch of the Month-Crossed Shells

August 2004 Stitch of the Month-Crossed Shells



Based on a multiple of 7 chain plus 2.

This stitch is a simple crossed shell design.

Note: When working the double crochet of the crossed shell, remember
to pull up a long loop.

Row 1: 1 Sc in 2nd ch from hook, * skip 3 ch, 3 dc in next ch, ch 1, 3 dc in last
ch of ch-3 just skipped for a crossed shell, skip 2 ch, 1 Sc
in next ch, repeat from * across, ch 3, turn.

Row 2: 2 dc in first Sc, * 1 sc in next ch-1 sp in center of shell groups, 3 dc in
sp after next sc, ch 1, 3 dc in sp before same sc, repeat from * across,
end 1 sc in last ch-1 sp, 3 dc in last sc, ch 1, turn.

Row 3: * 3 dc in sp after next sc, ch 1, 3 dc in sp before same sc, 1 sc in next
ch-1 sp, repeat from * across, end 1 sc in top of turning-ch, ch 3, turn.

Repeat Rows 2 & 3 for pattern.

This would work up great using rug yarn and a large hook. Or a scarf, using a 2 ply or 3 ply yarn.
