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 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.
