Shell Stitches 00101 and 10100

It's been a bit crazy recently because I was moving.  Now that the move is complete, I can actually crochet and blog again, so here goes.  We have here on the left, the purple, stitch 00101, and on the right, the red, stitch 10100.  Once again, the yarn choice affects the look of the stitch.  Regardless, the overall effect of the stitches are the same: they create columns of partially filled in triangles mixed with columns of completely open triangles.  As before, I prefer stitch 00101 over 10100 because of the more filled in edges.




Here's how to do these stitches:
Stitch 00101:
Chain a multiple of 6 + 5
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, (sk 2, [dc, ch 1, dc] in next ch, ch 2, sk 2, sc) across, [dc, ch 1, dc] in last ch
Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc, ([dc, ch 1, dc] in sc, ch 2, sk dc, sc in dc) across, [dc, ch 1, dc] in last sc

Repeat Row 2 for pattern

Stitch 10100:
Chain a multiple of 6 + 5
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, (sk 2, ch 2, [dc, ch 1, dc] in next ch, sk 2, sc) across, (ch 2, dc) in last ch
Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc, (ch 2, [dc, ch 1, dc] in sc, sk dc, sc in dc) across, (ch 2, dc) in last sc

Repeat Row 2 for pattern
