    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 2.5-10 cm of positive ease. Modeled with 10 cm of ease.

    Skills required: long-tail cast-on, backwards-loop cast-on, increasing, decreasing, sewn bind-off (instructions included)

    Sizes available (actual garment measurement at bust, in cm): 92, (99.5, 108, 116.5, 124, 133)

    Gauge: 19 stitches and 29 rounds to 10 cm in blocked stockinette

    Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
