Wake — by Holli Yeoh


With knitting on my mind I was thrilled to see lacy stitch patterns in the wake behind the BC ferry while going through Active Pass. Every time I rode the ferry I just knew I had to recreate the frothy movement of the water in a sweater design.


The body is worked in one piece to the armholes before dividing to work the fronts and back separately. Waist shaping is achieved by using progressively smaller, then progressively larger needle sizes making an unbroken flow of lace to hug the curves. English tailored shoulders and fully-fashioned details finish off the polished, yet feminine look.

The fingering weight yarn is held double throughout to meet gauge.
