Orithyia was the Ancient Greek goddess of the cold mountain winds. This shawl will keep you warm at the top of any mountain. It is a stunning heart-shaped shawl, worked top down in gorgeously warm and soft garter stitch and with two options for a bold striped edging.
You can see the two variations in the photos. The Zigzag shawl has a blue main colour and grey contrast colour and the Plain shawl has a grey main colour and blue contrast colour. I made both shawls from one skein of each yarn!

I’ve always loved creating things – the list of crafts I’ve tried and enjoy is pretty long and varied. Learning to knit has been a fantastic experience for me – it has all the advantages of my other crafts without the drawbacks. It’s relaxing, portable, practical & useful, decorative and offers boundless possibilities for creativity! There’s something magical in taking two sticks and some string and turning it into a shawl or a cuddly toy, or a hat or jumper. The possibilities are endless and that makes it really exciting.View all patterns by designer (8) »
