Shell Stitch 01010

So, this stitch is fairly open because there is a chain between every stitch.  This is a particularly mindless stitch because of the regularity of the chains.  It's a good balance between solid and lacy.  Scarves or baby blankets out of this stitch would be pretty. 

Anyway, here's the pattern:
Chain a multiple of 6 + 5
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, (ch 1, sk 2, [dc, ch 1, dc] in next ch, ch 1, sk 2, sc) across, [ch 1,  2 dc] in last ch
Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc, (ch 1, [dc, ch 1, dc] in sc, ch 1, sc in ch 1 space) across, [ch 1, 2 dc] in last sc

Repeat Row 2 for pattern 


  1. This is a first-class pattern. I have used it for several shawls. It looks good, is dense enough to be warm, yet not heavy. Here is one of them:
