  1. I sent the wrong email address. Here is the right one. If you are in the mood, could you also get the pattern for overlapping shells. I made a skirt once so long ago, but I left it when we moved here. Thanks I will make that anklet good with summer outfit for my daughter.

    1. I’ll try and find that shell stitch, I am not familiar with it at all.

      If you’re looking for plenty of patterns you can log-in Ravelry – the free pattern database there has grown enormous! Maybe there is something there similar to the sampaguita pattern.
