Inspired by one of my favourite and rare rocks, Coquina. Coquina means cockleshell or shellfish in Spanish. The rock is formed by a layering and compression of shells into a very hard rock, yet retaining the shell shapes we can recognize, unlike limestone.

This is a top down heart shaped shawl with pattern on both sides. It is suitable for ombre yarns, tonal, and solid. The stitches are relatively simple and easily memorized over the row; the knit is suitable for a more advanced or eager beginner lace knitter, with the dread pirate p2togtbl!
