The name “Coquina” refers to a group of small mollusks. These little clam-like creatures have a wide variety of colors and patterns on their shells. I chose this name for my pattern because of the resemblance of the lace pattern to scallops, or other shell-bearing organisms.

This wrap, made out of soft, lightweight merino, is perfect for Spring and Fall, or even chilly summer nights.

This pattern is suitable for knitters starting at the advanced beginner level. Stitches used in the pattern include the following:

knit, purl, yarn over, ssk, slipping purl-wise
