Callisto (Greek for “the most beautiful”) was a nymph from Greek mythology. She was one of the followers of Artemis, the goddess of the hunt and the wilderness.

This long asymmetrical triangular shawl evokes Greek ornaments with its mosaic patterns in natural colors. The patterns are easy to work, only one color is being worked at a time.

Yardage for each color:

  • Color C1 (dark gray in sample 1 / blue in sample 2): 306 yards / 280 m / 70g)
  • Color C2 (yellow in sample 1 / brown in sample 2): 350 yards / 320 m / 80g)
  • Color C3 (light gray in sample 1 / yellow in sample 2): 306 yards / 280m / 70g)

Callisto (griechisch: „die Schönste“) ist in der griechischen Mythologie eine Nymphe aus dem Umfeld der Jagd- und Naturgöttin Artemis.

Dieses langgezogene, asymmetrische Dreieckstuch erinnert mit seinen Mosaik-Mustern in Naturfarben an griechische Ornamente. Die Muster sind einfach zu stricken, es wird nie mehr als eine Farbe pro Reihe gleichzeitig genutzt.
