I was recently given one skein of this amazing yarn and wanted to create something worthy of such a beautiful colorway. The yarn immediately brought to mind the Greek myths about Calypso, the daughter of Titan Atlas, who creates delicate garments out of yarn shot through with silver thread. Starting at the outside edge, with lace that seems to drip off edge and worked inward, this elegant shawlette might not be made by a goddess but it’s a great uses for one skein of wonderful yarn.
