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

Yarn B: Azul Profundo 150 x 1 skein
● 3mm & 3.5mm hooks

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

Work four pattern reps and 14 rows to measure 10 x 10cm/ 4 x 4in wide using 3.5mm hook, or size required to obtain tension.
Exact tension is not essential.

Width: 130cm/52in.
Depth: 48cm/19in.
