Vast library of crochet stitches is something that comes in handy in the life and work of a knitwear designer. There are millions of combinations, and makers come up with new ones everyday. One of my favorite kind, the one which is versatile and easy, are Stunning Shell Stitches! They come in all shapes and sizes, and the basic idea is always the same – double crochets all in the same stitch or chain loop. Basic shell stitches are great starting point for intricate fan stitches, for example, which are bigger, more ornate and often include picots. Alternating colors in shell stitch work is another great example of very little effort, which result in amazing effects.
