Laura Aylor shares the story of her Glace Bay
shawl..."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
