IMPORTANT: This pattern has recently reverted to me and I am now working a rewrite to fix an error introduced in editing (please see here BEFORE you cast on) and to include written instructions. If you download this before then, your pattern will be updated when that is done. Thanks!
Inspired by Waterhouse’s masterpiece Circe Invidiosa, this shawl has three sections: Circe’s bowl of potion spilling over in an asymmetrical cable, Circe’s dress, and Scylla transformed in her pool. Tricoterie’s beautiful yarn captures the transition from the poison green of Circe’s potion through the blues, greens and teals of Waterhouse’s painting. The shawl is worked in one piece from the centre back of the neck edge of the bowl down through Circe’s dress, the potion cable that started at the bowl’s edge flowing into Scylla’s edging.
