The little shell stitch is a super cute stitch that is simple to execute and adds some visual interest to any project. Like most lace stitches this one has a right side and a wrong side so keep that in mind when deciding to use this stitch. What is also nice about this stitch is that there is only one pattern row and three "easy" rows making this pattern easy to memorize.
