Ersa is a generous, asymmetrical wrap as written. Initially worked in short rows to achieve the length, it is completed with a dramatic border worked in long rows along the edge. The pattern also offers options for a symmetrical wrap or a scarf.
In Greek mythology, Ersa is the goddess of nurturing dew and the daughter of Zeus.
Dimensions: (pre-blocking) 11 in. (27.9 cm) wide tapering to 7 in. (17.8 cm) wide and 50 in. (127 cm) along inner curve; (post-blocking) 15 in. (38.1 cm) wide tapering to 10.5 in. (26.7 cm) wide and 60 in. ( 152.4 cm) along inner curve.
The following stitches were used: foundation single crochet; half double crochet; two double crochet cluster; chain; slip stitch; double crochet; double crochet two together; double treble crochet; single crochet.
I began with 136 g of yarn. When I finished, I had 7 g of yarn remaining.
The pattern pdf includes 15 photos. Many show the wrap as it develops and as it is blocked.
Gina has provided the lovely graphic design, a print-and-go page, and recipe ideas for a symmetrical version of the wrap and a curved scarf.
