Anna Perenna Shawlette
This shallow shawlette is worked from the bottom up, with crescent shaping produced using short rows in garter stitch. The upper edge is finished with an I-cord bindoff. The shawlette pattern includes instructions for five yarn weights and two sizes for the heavier weight yarns - a versatile pattern, perfect for using up stash!
Anna Perenna is an old Roman goddess of the seasons (or "ring" of the year, as the name "per annum" indicates). Her festival fell on the Ides of March (March 15), which would have marked the first full moon in the year in the old lunar Roman calendar when March was reckoned as the first month of the year.
A thoroughly modern shape and yet, one can imagine it wrapped around the shoulders of Audrey Hepburn as she walks the streets of Rome or drinks coffee in a café in Paris.
This pattern works best with in solid, semi-solid or tonal colour, preferably in a wool or wool blend yarn.
