This shawlette gets its name from the two patterns that are used: the Cockle Shells lace edging and the Blue Bell ribbing. This shawlette is knit in one piece starting with the Cockle Shells lace edging and then the body of the shawlette is picked up and worked into the narrow curved shape using short rows. This shawlette is finished with a simple Blue Bell ribbing to prevent the edge from rolling.
The combination of lace and simple stockinette stitches, and the unique construction of this shawlette makes this a fun project that only uses 440 yards of sock yarn. Lace patterns are written, not charted.
