I grew up on the coast of Maine. It’s been many years since I lived there, but I miss the ocean and the beautiful boats coming into harbor.
When I was leafing through Barbara Walker’s Charted Knitting Designs, I came upon the Miniature Lattice stitch and was entranced. To me, it looks like small rippling waves.
Columns of stockinette suggest the pillars on a pier. The asymmetric design is an both classic and modern, suitable for men or women. Best of all, the back of the scarf is also attractive–a simple but interesting ribbed design.

About the Designer: Jill Bickers
Jill Bickers learned to knit about 40 years ago. Life intervened and she didn’t seriously pick up her needles for almost 20 years. Since then, she has pretty much always had knitting needles, yarn, and project bags near to hand.
Her Works in Progress pile is impressive–almost as impressive as her stash! She knits while watching TV, listening to audiobooks, travelling, and anywhere else she can get away with it. She especially loves to knit socks.
You can find her on Ravelry as Nobleknitwit and her designs at https://www.ravelry.com/designers/jill-bickers.
