Hestia is my newest Parthenon-inspired wrap. It is a light wrap roughly scalene in shape. It begins with a tiny number of stitches at one side, and gradually increases in length and width. The lotus flower edging is added after the body is completed.

Hestia was released for the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies and for the 2014 Ravellenic Games.

Crocheters were invited to participate in a crochet-along in our Ravelry group, CrochetWorks.
The resulting projects were wonderful!
