Sea Witches are witches who can help or hinder sailors out on the stormy sea. They draw power from the moon, tides, and the weather, and were believed to have complete control over the seas. They even have the power to control the fates of ships and seamen.

They can control the wind by using a rope tied into three knots. When the three knots are tied in the proper magical way, the wind is bound up in them. Witches gave, or sometimes sold, these magic knots to sailors to help them experience safe voyages. The release of one knot brought a gentle, southwesterly wind; two knots, a strong north wind; and three knots, a tempest.

Mystic Sea Witch is a circular shawl, originally published in mystery KAL format. It is also available as a semi-circular shawl. You will need approx. 1700 m (4 skeins) of fingering weight yarn for the circular shawl, and 850 m (2 skeins) for the semi-circular shawl.

The yarn and some other goodies is available as a KIT from Yarn Fairy.
