This scarf is named for the early male counterpart to the Roman goddess Ceres (goddess of grain and agriculture), who never made it into the regular Roman pantheon. The way the colors of the yarn wove together in Linen Stitch reminded me of wheat somehow, and because it's a knit appropriate for men, I dug up the name of this obsolete god. The scarf is knit in Linen Stitch lengthwise (each row travels the entire length of the scarf, rather than back and forth along the width).
