Ogygia is the island where the goddess Calypso weaves her magical garments. Knitted this time around, this lovely wrap is a perfect layer for a simple walk along the beach or a dinner with the gods.

Worked seamlessly from the top down, the repeating Ogee lace pattern flows down the back, twisting the yarn around itself, bunching up and stretching back out. Fronts are worked simultaneously with two balls of yarns before being joined with the back for the whole piece to be worked at once. The lower edging, as well as the collar and sleeve cuffs, is set off by a section of purled stitches before being worked in a broken rib. Button holes are worked on the lower edging.
