I wanted a sweater that was cropped and could be worn over dresses, overalls or high waisted jeans. The design idea came to me when I first got my hands on a skein of Biscotte’s Speckled yarn in Seashell. I knew it had to be about the ocean in some way. Then, remembering being out on the water and seeing this magnificant whale’s tail come up out of the ocean I knew I needed to incorporate that beauty into my sweater. I designed the colorwork to ressemble a whale’s tail and added a wide hem on the bottom that also mimics the beauty of a whale’s tail. I will fondly hold the memory of my Seascape adventure and remember it everytime I wear my most treasured design! - Andrea Yetman
