As soon as I saw the name of this stitch, I knew it had to be mine! Obviously I think Elizabeth is the best name in world because it's what I called my daughter so hurrah for her having a crochet stitch named after her (or the other way round but who cares)?
The stitch is a nice repeating pattern. In the cotton that I've used for this tutorial it comes up as quite a gappy stitch but I think it was a good choice because it shows the stitch pattern off to its best advantage. If you used something more woolly or thicker weight then it would be a fairly solid, dense stitch. Either way, cotton or wool, it's a nice moveable stitch so would be good for fabric projects or to give some texture.
This Elizabeth stitch is from the New Directions in Crochet book by Anne Rabun Ough, which I would link but can't find anywhere, know that it is a SUPER book though so if you do see one, make sure you pick it up.
