There is a moment when the high tide no longer dominates. That moment when the surface of the water shivers and shifts as if
to an unseen breeze. That moment – the tidal shift – is when high tide surrenders to the pull of the moon and begins the long journey back out to sea. The sequence pattern stitch used in this wrap is worked over and over again, with a precisely located decrease and increase in the second row to create a bias fabric that swirls and moves – just like the tidal shift.

This scarf is quite simple with only knit and purl; increase and decrease.

Tidal Shift is based on an 11 stitch pattern, in a sequence that is described in Cecelia Campochiaro’s book, Sequence Knitting. The sequence is worked as a two row pattern; the second row begins with a decrease and ends with an increase to shift the pattern and create a bias fabric.

The wrap may be resized by working more or fewer rows or casting on more or fewer stitches in multiples of 11.
