This is my favorite go-to shell stitch--it's so easy to memorize, and it looks really pretty and uniform once it's worked up into a fabric.The pattern for this stitch is also in Reader's Digest Complete Guide To Needlework (1979 edition); it's one of my favorite crafting resources. --Pia (Love this intricate stitch. Great for scarf, wrap, or blanket)
