Sitting on the back of our boat, it was meditative to look behind and watch the repetitive lines that the waves made.
This shawl features detailing reminiscent of those patterned wake lines

Boat Wake is a shallow crescent shawl, constructed from the top down.
The pattern sees you work the body of the shawl in striped garter stitch, forming a long shallow crescent.
Once a specific stitch count is reached, an edging of slipped stitches, imitating ripples is worked.
