Athena is a semi-circular shawl designed to include all of my favorite things: worsted weight yarn, garter stitch, stripes, and ribbing.
My version of Athena is knit out of Madelinetosh Vintage, which makes for a super soft and snuggly shawl. Wear it scrunched up around your neck or draped around your shoulders, and have fun choosing the colors – there are so many great combinations!
