Crowded Shells Stitch
Reviewed by Caroline

The sample is made with 4-ply worsted weight yarn and a size H hook.

You will need a sz H crochet hook and worsted weight yarn.

The pattern:
This week's pattern came from Knitted Threads

To Make the square shown
Start with a base chain of 31 and work until it is square.

This stitch is realatively easy. It shows up better though with a solid color of yarn rather than the varigated I choose for this sample.  There's lots of texture and the color changes in the yarn hide that.  It makes a nice solid fabric which wont catch easily on fingers.  And as with other stitches at Knitted Threads, the instructions are really easy to follow.  The only thing I don't really like about this stitch is that the top and bottom edges end up scalloped which makes it a little difficult to use for a sampler square.

Afghans, sampler squares, dishcloths, scarves, eyeglass cases, etc.
