Eostre is believed to be an ancient Saxon Goddess of spring.
Although little is written about her, she appears to be a goddess of purity, youth and beauty, as well as one of

This shawl has a unique construction. The centre panel of leaves is knit first, from the bottom up. Stitches are then
picked up along either side, and work is continued in the traditional topdown triangle manner. The top edge is finished off with a feminine picot bind-off.

it a beautiful drape, just the right amount of warmth for cool spring evenings.
Knit Eostre and bring a little pagan magic to your wardrobe.
