This scarf was inspired by a picture in Handschuhe, a vintage knitting book from Germany by Eva Maria Leszner. The basketweave pattern is reminiscent of fishing nets, so I chose blue and natural colors to accentuate the ideas of sea and shore. The Japanese word ajiro describes a herringbone pat-tern in basketry, which seems fitting for a country known for its long fishing traditions and bold graphic representations of natural elements. This scarf is knitted in the round, which sim-plifies the Fair Isle patterning (no wrong-side rows) and cre-ates an insulating double layer of fabric. This scarf will keep you warm even on the coldest windswept shore.
