I could only be somewhat sure she was real—the lady at the bayside, her feet hanging from the wharf to the frigid north Atlantic water.

The pattern of her shawl dipped and cut across itself like a cold-sea current laid close to her shoulders. Or maybe it cut to and fro like cracks in ice that spread and warm as often as they close.

I could almost hear it skipping from the wharf to the water, singing.

The center portion of this long, shallow shawl is knit from the top down using the Jacquard stitch from Barbara Walker’s second treasury of knitting patterns. It is a simple combination of stockinette and slipped stitches.

The ribbed ruffle is knit on after picking up stitches around the sides.

Note: Unfortunately, there’s really not an easy way to change the size, as the pattern stitch repeat requires multiples of 12 but the row repeat requires multiples of 14 to get the center diamond to end at the correct spot.
