13. Shell Pattern

"Shell Pattern" is my personal favorite thus far. Triangles of large eyelets separate the shell motifs, which are edged with dainty eyelets. The stitch count rises from 15 to 25 and returns to the original number in the final row of the 16-row repeat. The bind-off is different than we have seen to date (noted on the chart with an asterisk). After 11 stitches of R16 are worked, the first 10 are slipped over the 11th one at a time before continuing with the remainder of the row. The result is a very pleasing cupped effect, adding dimension and elegance to the design.
