This stitch is a combination of twisted chain stitch and shell chain stitch. The working of the stitch on Queenie’s blog.
The sampler is started with basic twisted shell chain stitch. The same stitch is worked in a curve in the second sample. Shorter twisted chains are worked in the next sample. The twisted chains is extended in the fourth sample. The twisted chains are worked on both sides in the last sample.

In the first sample, the twisted shell chains are alternatively worked with shell chain stitches. The zigzag twisted shell chain stitch is worked in the next sample. The twisted chains are worked on one colour and the shells are worked in lighter colour in the third sample. The twisted shell chain stitch is worked in two colours in the next sample. In the last sample, after working two rows of twisted shell chain stitches, the shell part was whipped with another thread.

An interesting stitch which combines twisted chain and shell chain. I liked working the samples with 6 strands of cotton skein. The sampler.
