Epione is a generous, crescent-shaped wrap. Initially worked in short rows to achieve the length, it is finished with a dramatic border worked in rows along the outside edge.
In the myths, Epione was the goddess of soothing. She was mother of Panacea (goddess of medicine) and Hygieia (goddess of health).
Dimensions: (pre-blocking) 13 in. (33 cm) wide and 52 in. (132 cm) along the inner curve. (post-blocking) 18 in.
(45.7 cm) wide and 58 in. (147 cm) along the inner curve.
The yardage listed above is for one hank of Yasmin. The weight is given as 130g. When I finished crocheting, I had 13g of yarn remaining.
Stitches used: chain, double crochet, foundation single crochet, half double crochet, single crochet, two double crochet cluster, picots, and a special stitch combination.
Once again, Gina has done her special magic with the pattern layout. She has also provided helpful recipe information as well as the “Print and Go” page.
The pattern pdf contains 15 photos. Many of those show the wrap as it develops.
