All Over Shell Stitch

I have added an all over shell stitch to my stitch category, this pretty design is worked over 2 rows and you can use the stitch for various items, to name just a few, blankets, shawls, scarves hats etc,  I am finding that there are always new crochet pattern stitches popping up so I will be adding more as and when I can.
