Gorgeous hand-dyed sock yarn and a desire for an easy and textured pattern led me to design Ananke.
In Greek mythology, Ananke was the personification of destiny, necessity and fate. She was often depicted holding a spindle. How perfect! I feel that she compelled me to knit this shawl, and a second, and a third. Give in to Ananke and knit one for yourself!
