Ode to the Bay
Now available! Part of the Fairy Tales Saga collection.
This is the first pattern in the Fairy Tales Saga. Ariel was always one of my favorite Disney characters–she was a ginger, after all. This shawl is inspired by another mermaid, though. The mermaid from the original Hans Christian Andersen tale was more like your typical fairy tale damsel than Ariel ever was and I found her adventure for love to be more sincere than Ariel’s. She slept on a pillow outside of the prince’s door to prove her devotion! There’s nothing quite possibly less demeaning than that. This shawl is an ode to the waves that the little mermaid forsake for a man who made her sleep on a pillow outside of his door. Although beautiful, love proved to be more alluring than the sea. This yarn is the perfect choice for the shawl: a gorgeous yarn inspired and dyed by nature, that so perfectly resembles the sea.
