Fiddle Knits Designs

A knit shawl pattern

From the Mythos Collection

Skill Level: Intermediate

Wrought is named in honor of the Greek and Roman god of the forge and volcanos. The Greeks called him Hephaestus. To the Romans he was known as Vulcan. Hephaestus was cast out of Mount Olympus at birth by his mother, Hera (Juno), because she did not want to look upon his ugly and deformed features. It is said that Hephaestus fell from Mount Olympus for a day and a night before he fell into the ocean and was rescued by the sea creatures. Under a volcano on the island of Lemenos he set up his forge where he wrought masterful jewelry, armor, and weapons. Hera, feeling guilty about banishing her son, pleaded with Zeus to allow him to return. Zeus granted her wish, however, Hephaestus refused to return saying he preferred the quieter life by his forge.

The Wrought shawl is worked from the bottom up starting with the large leaf border. As knitting progresses your rows will become shorter. This shawl is written in two sizes. The smaller shawlette takes a single skein of Fiddle Knits Harmonic sock yarn (490 yards). The larger size requires two skeins of the same yarn. 

Measurements listed to the right are the measurements of my finished shawls after blocking. Please keep in mind that your shawl may vary from these numbers depending on how vigorously you block your piece.
