Did you know that Scallops are the only migratory bivalve? They travel, or swim, by rapidly opening and closing their shells. Their repetitive and radiating fan shaped shell is iconic of seashells around the world because of this. This pattern uses a traditional crochet motif of shells that are opened in the center and the Mbius design keeps the pattern moving constantly with no apparent beginning or end. A photo tutorial is included for how to make the twist. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY double crochet half double crochet chain GAUGE 4 shell motif (2 dc, 1 ch, 2 dc) = 4.5" blocked SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS sung, variables and options given
