Knitting, SweetGeorgia

Ocean Grove by Angela Tong

Inspired by the abundant Victorian architecture in Ocean Grove, New Jersey, this light, lovely shawl by Angela Tong, knit up in our Botanica Party of Five set (hello spring!) is a gorgeous accessory for the warmer weather season that nears. Highly textural stitches in a stunning gradient add layer upon layer of depth, detail, and beauty. We can’t get enough of it!

We love getting to know the designers behind the knit, so we asked Angela ….

What is your favourite part about your design?

I love the combination of stitch patterns that form the body of the shawl, but I also adore the gradient colors of the yarn. I think the knitters will enjoy knitting the simple repeats of the pattern stitches. The stitches are not hard but gives a highly textural effect.

What is your favourite guilty pleasure?

Late night snack run to the store.

What is your favourite spring or summer flower?

Hydrangeas
