Amphitrite, the wife of Poseidon, was the Greek goddess of the sea. With the effervescent lace that looks like bubbles rising in the water, I couldn’t resist honoring her namesake with this generously sized one skein marvel.
Designed as my submission for the Artesanitarium design challenge. The goal of this design challenge was to create a project that only used one skein, knit the sample for the pattern, and tech edited within September, testing completed within October, and the final design ready to release between the end of October to the beginning of November. Happy to say the mission was a success! Thus, Amphitrite came to be.
Worked flat, Amphitrite consists of written directions. This asymmetrical shawl works favorably with solids, semi-solid, speckles, and lightly variegated yarn. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the techniques used and a handy-dandy progress tracker to help you keep track of your row and stitch counts.
