Ollipheist is The Great Beast in Celtic legend, and is another form of the Gaelic uilebheist (oo-le-veist) which means “monster”. This monster is scaly on one side and bony on the other and is reversible so that the little monster can switch around according to mood. The bony side is made from a triplet of two-part cables and the scaly side features a popular snakeskin stitch pattern. The sweater is knit from the hem up in the round.
NOTE: The -2 (negative 2) in a couple of the sizes for this sweater means to start on st #3 of the Scaly stitch chart. Please forgive any confusion caused by this cryptic instruction!
