Pattern: Poseidon Cowl

Poseidon is my latest release to keep up with the Ancient Greek themed pattern family. As the weather just starts to cool over here its a great simple pattern to whip up for fall before the heavy scarves need to be pulled out. Or to make as a gift or two.  The pattern is both written and charted so you can follow the instructions you prefer.

Poseidon Cowl

Poseidon is best known as god of the seas, and when I saw this Hand Maiden yarn I could think of nothing else but the ocean. The same thought occurred to me with the grey Malabrigo as many of the stories I know of Poseidon, he is angry and calling forth storms and the grey reminds me of the darkness of being on a stormy sea. The lace pattern reminded me of horses as well, another thing Poseidon is god of.  Combined with a motif that looks like seaweed, this fall cowl is a perfect quiet reminder of the sea god.
