Shell Stitches 01001 and 10010

Moving on to the next pair of stitches in the series: we have stitches 01001 (blue) and 10010 (green).  Both stitches are easy to work, and give a lacy look.  I prefer the blue version (01001) because the edges are more in line with the rest of the work.  I was actually surprised by how much I like this stitch.  It's lacy, but still mostly filled in.  It looks much more complicated than it actually is, but it still manages to look neat and tidy.  The green version is also pretty, but I really like the blue one.  I will probably use this stitch in the future to make scarves. 


Here are the stitch patterns:
Stitch 01001:
Chain a multiple of 6 + 5
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, (sk 2, [dc, ch 2, dc] in next ch, ch 1, sk 2, sc) across, [dc, ch 1, dc] in last ch
Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc, ([dc, ch 2, dc] in sc, ch 1, sc in ch 2 space) across, [dc, ch 1, dc] in last sc

Repeat Row 2 for pattern

Stitch 10010:
Chain a multiple of 6 + 5
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, (ch 1, sk 2, [dc, ch 2, dc] in next ch, sk 2, sc) across, [ch 1,  2 dc] in last ch
Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc, (ch 1, [dc, ch 2, dc] in sc, sc in ch 2 space) across, [ch 1, 2 dc] in last sc

Repeat Row 2 for pattern
