This pattern is also available as part of the Poseidon’s Realm, Part Two pattern collection.

A crescent shaped shawl with scale-like lace that represents Perseus’ armor. Perseus, along with Pegasus, rescued Andromeda from the Kraken in Greek Mythology. The undulating lace is great for showing off tonal variations in hand-dyed yarns.

This shawl is worked from the top down, beginning with a garter tab. Both written and charted instructions are included. This shawl uses a combination of Pi shaping and increases on every right side row to achieve its shape. The lace pattern is worked on both the right side and wrong side.
