This shawl is a combination of beautiful clam shapes (almejas) and a delicate lace edging that hints at the sea.

● Malabrigo Sock, 100% wool, 100g/402m/440yds

You can use any 4ply/fingering weight yarn for the body and any laceweight yarn for the edging to achieve a similar effect.

Exact tension is not essential.
