These elegant cowls and necklace were inspired by Tridacna, a giant clam. The scalloped edges of the elongated stitch pattern mimic the fluted edges of the clam’s shell.

The pattern can be knit as a long infinity loop, a short cozy cowl, or a necklace. The long cowl requires 273 yards. The short cowl requires 170 yards MC, 50 yards CC. The necklace requires 30 yards each of MC and CC. Choose a yarn with silk for drape and shine!

The pattern was inspired by yarn specially dyed to match a photo of a Tridacna clam. The photo was taken by Murray Post, husband of Susan Post, the owner A Good Yarn in Sarasota, FL. You can find the yarn there.
