Pattern Description:

Tethys (pronounced TEE-this), one of Saturn's 53 moons, was discovered in 1684 by the astronomer Cassini. The moon was named for Tethys in Greek mythology, who was both sister and wife of Oceanus.

Designed with full skirt, long sleeves, and folded hems, pullover is worked from the hem up in pieces, then seamed. Ribbing accentuates the high waist. The folded hem lets a little color peek through along the edges. The deep v-neck looks great when worn over a coordinating tank top or camisoleor not, for a little va?va-va-voom.

I have knit and crocheted, and done various forms of embroidery and needlepoint since early grammar school. Making things with bits of colored string is so integral to my being that the few times of my life when I don't have *something* on the go feel empty, and without form.
