Making Progress: Stitch Eleven

This is a very lacy stitch that was easy to do.  It was obvious where to do each portion of the stitch, and did not require a lot of focus.  This stitch is a little too lacy for my tastes, but if lacy is what you are going for this is not a bad option.  I do like the line of chains going through the stitch (they're yellow in the blanket I made).

The color pattern I used was 2 rows of yellow followed by (2 rows of blue, 2 rows of yellow) repeated.

Here's how to make it:
Chain 93 then work the stitch until work is square.  Add a border and it's done.
Round 1: sc around, 3 sc in each corner (blue)
Round 2: dc around, 5 dc in each corner (blue)
Round 3: dc around, 5 dc in each corner (yellow)
Round 4: dc around, 5 dc in each corner (blue)
Round 5: (sc, ch 3, sk 1) around, (sc, ch 3, sc in same stitch) at corner (blue)

I made this using Lion Brand Pound of Love Pastel Blue and Pastel Yellow with a J hook.
