Wake by Holli Yeoh, knit in SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock (Hush)

Wake designed 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, creating an unbroken flow of lace to hug the curves. English tailored shoulders and fully-fashioned details finish off the polished, feminine look.
