Sisyphus, king of Ephyra, was condemned by the gods to roll a boulder to the top of a hill for all eternity, only to have it roll back down every time he got near the top.

Unlike the story it depicts, there is little frustration to be had with this pattern. Extremely easy geometric colorwork makes this a breeze of a knit even for those who have never done colorwork before.

The given gauge and needles are for small size. The large employs US size 2 and 3 needles with a gauge of 28sts / 30rows= 4”.

Sisyphus is the first of a trio. Check out Pandora Mitts and Medusa Mittens!
