Amphitrite, the wife of Poseidon, was the Greek goddess of the sea. She was chosen by Poseidon, among her 50-100 sisters, to be his bride. Amphitrite has refused Poseidon’s proposal and fled to Atlas – only to be found and returned to him to be his bride. As with most Greek mythology, the patriarchy runs amok. With the effervescent lace that looks like bubbles rising in the water, I couldn’t resist honoring her namesake with this generously sized one-to-two skein wonder.
This triangular-shaped shawl is worked along the bias, starting at one corner and slowly increasing 3 stitches every 4 rows, giving it that luscious shape.
Worked flat, Amphitrite contains written directions and charts. A handy-dandy progress tracker is included to help you with your rows and stitch counts. Yardage for each section is given should you wish to turn this into a scrappy project!
