Edna’s ‘Wake’ Sweater

Edna knitted this beautiful sweater recently using BC Garn Bio Shetland.  The pattern is Wake, by Veronik Avery.  Bio Shetland has similar characteristics to the yarn used for the original design.  So, it can be substituted without modification.

Edna used just 6 skeins (300g) of Bio Shetland.

We love the bias-knit cables in this design, and the extra length in the back.  It’s a nice, easy-wearing casual style that’s great for layering.

Like all garments made with this yarn, it’s soft and light and very warm.  Edna warns us, however, that the yarn wasn’t strong enough for the seams.  One of her seams did break, and had to be repaired.  And there are quite a few seams in this design.  You work it in pieces, with raglan sleeves and a narrow collar around the back.

Techniques used include stocking stitch, cables, seaming, grafting (Kitchener stitch) at the back of the collar, and single crochet around the neckline.
