Notes: This swatch shows six horizontal repeats and four vertical repeats. It includes the difficult “k5tog tbl” maneuver, so keep a crochet hook handy! While I wouldn’t necessarily call the wrong side attractive, it’s at least interesting.

    […] swatch is Clamshell Pattern, which is a total pain in the butt to work! I found it impossible to k5tog tbl with knitting […]

    Your swatch is lovely, but the stitch is probably not worth the hassle of the k5tog tbl. The back is attractive enough that it could be reversible.

    I really like this stitch. I just tried it and found it fairly simple if one doesn’t knit too tightly! I just have to get this book now, after being mesmerized by these beautiful swatches :^)

    I love it. I was thinking about buying the first 2 books as well, and seeing all these lovely swatches definitely makes me want to go for it! I actually love the back side even more than the front^_^
