“A very strange stranger it must be, who does not see the charms in the immediate environs of Lyme, to make him wish to know it better.”

-Jane Austen*

The lace panel in this scarf was inspired by the waves that crash into the shore where the land meets the sea. Along the edge of the scarf main body is a row of eyelets formed with yarn overs, which are reminiscent of the steps of the Cobb built with hewn stone and worn by years of crashing salt water, sunshine, and weather. I used about 190 yards of the yandspun for this project, and also swatched in a millspun yarn, Blackberry Ridge Mer-Made in light blue.

This pattern is written for one size, and features ruffled ends. It is knitted in one piece from beginning to end and is an excellent first lace project!
