Today I walked alone from Ingonish beach, along the wooded cliff. It was not a mild day, but classically Cape Breton, where the wind makes up most of your breath. It lifts you elsewhere even as your feet root among the rocks.

The last time I was here, she had given me a shell, a bit of sea glass, a sea-smoothed pebble. She brought me these things to give me a part of the place she loved. And her sweater was like the wind as it whipped between and around us, we too-small forms against the cold sea.

A relaxed-fit tunic knit from the top down in one go – no short rows, no neckline stitches to pick up. Modified raglan shaping gives a more flattering fit through the shoulders. The front panel and edges are variations of Barbara Walker’s Jacquard stitch pattern and are created by simply slipping a couple of stitches with the working yarn in front. The slightly tighter row gauge of the front panel causes a bit of an elliptical hem line. Written to be worn with 1-4” of positive ease. Modeled with 4” of ease.
