A triangular striped shawl in the bold colors of a sunset, named for the mythological Greek goddesses of the sunset and the keepers of the Golden Apples. Hesperides is great for using a fun variegated yarn with a complimentary solid color, the striped and lacy stitch pattern helps break up any pooling.

This shawl is worked from the top down, beginning with a provisionally cast on garter stitch tab. Four increases are made every right side row. In the Striped Lace sections, the yarn can be carried along the edge to prevent a lot of ends that need to be woven in. Both written and charted instructions are given.

Additional Materials:
Crochet hook
Waste yarn
Yarn needle
Stitch markers
